Today marks great progress for the Lyft movement. Governor John Hickenlooper has signed the Transportation Network Company Act into law, making history for Colorado as the first state to authorize ridesharing through a legislative process.
This bill was the result of a thoughtful and collaborative discussion with state leaders throughout which the voices of the Lyft community have been instrumental. Your stories, enthusiasm and support helped to drive us forward, and today you’ve been heard.
By creating a common-sense regulatory framework for ridesharing that prioritizes public safety and consumer choice, Colorado has stepped up as leader in welcoming innovative, community-powered transportation options and forging a path for other jurisdictions to follow.
Peer-to-peer transportation options like Lyft benefit the local economy, improve quality of life for residents and visitors alike, and promote safe and affordable rides. We look forward to watching the ridesharing community grow and thrive in the state of Colorado for years to come.
Thank you for your help in reaching this important milestone!
