HARRISBURG -- Governor Tom Wolf made ride-sharing legal across the state Friday by signing a bill that enables services like Lyft and Uber to operate.
It's a welcome move for drivers who provide rides and for customers as well.
Uber has been running in our area for more than a year now and hasn't faced any significant roadblocks.
Services such as Uber and Lyft aren't like taxicabs. They rely on personal vehicles and a mobile app to pair drivers with riders.
This whole battle began in Philadelphia where the city wanted to regulate both Uber and Lyft, but now the state will regulate both services, meaning it’s fair game in Scranton and all across the commonwealth.
The taxicab business is not happy with these ride-hailing apps, saying it's unfair and takes customers from its drivers.
