Uber, Lyft Regulations Still In The Works
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Before Uber, Lyft and other so-called transportation network companies can rev up to offer rides in Nevada, a state agency's draft rules have a few more steps to navigate.
On Tuesday the Nevada Transportation Authority submitted 15-pages of draft regulations to the Legislative Counsel Bureau.
The regulations still face a future public hearing and approval by state lawmakers on the Legislative Commission.
Based on the draft, companies could be on the hook for a $300,000 application fee and a 1 percent levy on annual operating revenues. Drivers could face a $50 fee the first year and $10 annual renewal.
The draft rules don't appear to restrict where ride-hailing cars can pick up or drop off passengers. It also doesn't address a company's ability to charge surge-pricing during peak travel times.
