Ride Sharing Laws

Ride Sharing Laws are on the rise. Is this a good or bad thing for Taxi Service in places like NJ & NYC?

First of all, we do not really know just yet. Regulating a booming business model is necessary in our competitive market.

A grand majority of cars on the road in NJ & NYC are from some kind of Taxi Service. In addition, we hope that Ride Sharing App Laws will maintain this organic traffic.

A major problem with Ride Sharing Apps is the strength of their background checks for their drivers. Consequently, it is safe to assume that regulation will tighten this gap. Most noteworthy, Ride Sharing Laws will help the industry weed out the drivers that should not be on the road. However, will it open the door for Ride Sharing Apps to gain further market dominance?

Especially relevant, Garden State Taxi Service wants everyone to succeed – but succeed safely. Furthermore, we want our passengers and drivers to be safe along with the passengers and drivers in other vehicles. In addition, we hope Ride Sharing App Laws will also help our transportation industry remain full of integrity.

In conclusion, we support Ride Sharing Laws and hope it will help further clear the blurred lines of a First Class Taxi Service and a Ride Sharing App.

The Senate has now sent Governor Wolf a bill to grant permanent authorization for ride-share services, and spokesman Jeff Sheridan says the governor will sign a measure he believes is “long overdue.”

“Additionally, what’s really encouraging about this legislation is that it puts an end to any question about ride-sharing companies’ operations in Philadelphia,” Sheridan said. Sheridan also says the governor is pleased that a 1.4 percent assessment levied on ride-share companies’ revenues in Philadelphia, two-thirds of which will go to the city’s school district, will be extended under provisions of the ride-sharing authorization bill. He says Pennsylvania needs to find ways to fuel the development of these and other high-tech companies…”
