Kansas City seeks public feedback on new proposed Uber regulations

Kansas City is seeking feedback on its regulations affecting Uber and other ride-sharing companies.

In April 2015, the City Council approved regulations designed to allow companies like Uber to operate in the city while guarding public safety. But the deal allowed Uber drivers to work for a 30-day orientation period without acquiring a vehicle permit.

Opponents to the regulations say that this period creates a loophole in which drivers can solicit rides over a prolonged period of time while claiming that they are in the 30-day orientation period.

Now, the city’s Regulated Industries Division is considering proposing changes to the city law with the help of the public in the form of input on suggested changes. The public comment period will last until Aug. 17. People can provide information at www.kcmomentum.org or by emailing Regulated Industries manager Jim Ready at jim.ready@kcmo.org.
