Uber still not back in Lauderdale

ADVERTISEMENT

Elected officials in South Florida’s Broward County could not come to an agreement in mid-September over rules to regulate ride-sharing services such as Uber. After discussing the issue for seven hours, county commissioners ended their Sept. 17 meeting at midnight and will reconsider the rules on Oct. 13.
Uber pulled out of Broward County, which includes Ft. Lauderdale, on July 31 after objecting to new county rules that require drivers to be fingerprinted, submit to background checks, and carry the kind of insurance needed for commercial vehicles.
