Uber arrived in our state three years ago and has been #MovingFlorida since. We operate in many Florida communities and are an integral component of transportation systems. However, different local regulations create obstacles for drivers and riders.
House Bill 221, by Reps. Chris Sprowls (R-Clearwater) and James Grant (R-Tampa), passed its two committees. Along with Senate Bill 340, sponsored by Sen. Jeff Brandes (R-St. Petersburg), this legislation replaces the patchwork of regulations with a statewide framework for transportation network companies.
It’s time Florida joins 38 states that have passed statewide regulations and create a home for ridesharing.
