Ducey says ride-hailing services are revolutionizing how we live and get around and that Wednesday's ceremonial signing of House Bill 2135 is just one of several new laws easing the way for innovative companies he's signed.
Lyft government relations director Veronica Juarez says the bill allows Arizonans to take advantage of new job and transportation opportunities.
The bill lays out a new regulatory scheme for ride-hailing firms and traditional taxi companies and sets minimum insurance rules. It also requires vehicle inspections, driver background checks, and sets a zero tolerance policy for drug and alcohol use by drivers.
