On-demand ride sharing companies operating in Kentucky now face statewide regulations.
The issue has been a prominent topic at Lexington city hall. Two ride sharing firms, Lyft and Uber have been offering pick up service to area citizens for months.
Urban County Council Member Peggy Henson says the state rules seem to cover the pressing issues. "The driver backgrounds, the drivers' insurance, the records of vehicle inspections. And it goes on and on and on," said Henson.
