Judges Order 2 Ride Sharing Aps In PA To Stop Operations

Two administrative law judges Tuesday ordered two smartphone app-based ride-sharing services to halt their operations in Pennsylvania until they get properly licensed.
The judges granted the Public Utility Commission's emergency orders against Uber and Lyft while the agency pursues administrative actions against them. The PUC contends that both companies are operating as unlicensed transportation brokers in the state and are using non-certified drivers to provide their services.
