Ridesharing services illegal in City of Columbia

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

The City of Columbia says popular ride-sharing services like Uber are illegal in the Capital City.

The city released a statement Friday saying taxicab companies are required to be approved by several boards before receiving a business license.

Currently, ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft are not licensed.

The Office of Regulatory Staff and the Public Service Commission will meet next month to determine whether those services should be licensed.
