'Ride-share' Services on Road to Legitimacy

at 9:30 AM
 (Dan Brekke/KQED)

"Ride-share" companies like Lyft, Uber, and Sidecar, may be here to stay -- if they follow a new set of rules proposed by the California Public Utilities Commission. The CPUC may require the companies to more strictly regulate drivers, who have been accused by cab drivers of operating as illegal "gypsy cabs." We discuss the issue.

Guests:

Marzia Zafar, director of the Policy and Planning Division of the California Public Utilities Commission

Sunil Paul, co-founder and CEO of SideCar Technologies, a rideshare community with operations in San Francisco and Seattle

Christiane Hayashi, deputy director of taxis at the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency
