Initial Approval Given To Legalize Lyft and UberX In Miami-Dade

miamiFor more than 30 days, Lyft and UberX have been conducting illegal operations in the region, landing themselves in the bad records of the law enforcement agents. However, all that is about to change as the Miami-Dade County Commission has given an approval on Tuesday. Although, the approval is still an initial one, it is a major boost to the proposal. Hopeful, that it will eventually legalize the services of the ride-for-hide companies in Miami-Dade County.

According to the Commissioner, Esteban Bovo, the new piece of legislation will give Lyft and UberX the authorization that they need to operate. On the board, the members voted 10-2 to pave way for Bovo’s law. Jose Diaz and Dennis Moss decided to oppose the motion while one other commissioner, Sally Heyman, was absent. In the past, there were heated discussions on the proposals put forward concerning UberX and Lyft but things have been resolved now, even if the final passage has not been made yet.
