UBER_billCHARLOTTE—New regulations for ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft are now in place.

Gov. Pat McCrory was at the Charlotte Chamber Friday morning to sign the so-called “Uber bill” into law. The legislation imposes restrictions on drivers and requires the services to pay a licensing fee to the state. Drivers will need to undergo background checks and maintain liability insurance on their vehicles.

Law details:

·         Mandatory county, federal, and multi-state background checks

·         $1.5 Million primary insurance coverage on every trip
