Statement by Mayor William Peduto on State Ride-Sharing Legislation

PITTSBURGH, PA (July 3, 2014) - “As of today, actions are underway in the Legislature to support ride-sharing services and I stand solidly behind them.

State Sen. Wayne Fontana is set to introduce legislation to allow for operation of these innovative transportation systems and I support similar bipartisan efforts being introduced in the House.

In the interim I fully support a resolution being introduced by State Rep. Erin Molchany calling on the Public Utility Commission to issue provisional approvals for the companies Lyft and Uber to operate this weekend to alleviate pressing public safety concerns about drunk driving this holiday weekend.

I remain thankful to Gov. Tom Corbett for standing with me and others in support of these innovative 21st Century businesses.”
