Wolf Signs Legislation Authorizing Ride-Sharing in Philadelphia, Urges Long-Term Legislative Solution

July 14, 2016

Harrisburg, PA – Yesterday, Governor Tom Wolf signed legislation authorizing ride-sharing companies including Uber and Lyft to operate in Philadelphia under a temporary agreement. Governor Wolf has called for legislation permanently authorizing the services in Philadelphia.

“I have supported the legalization of ride-sharing companies like Uber and Lyft in Philadelphia and throughout Pennsylvania, and I believe we should be finding ways to help these companies grow across the commonwealth,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “It is also encouraging that the legislation provides two-thirds of the revenue derived from ride sharing to the Philadelphia School District. I will work to make sure the school district is a primary beneficiary in the final legislation. I was pleased to sign this temporary agreement into law, and I look forward to working with the legislature to finalize a long-term solution to allow ride-sharing in Philadelphia.”
