ELIZABETH - Ride-share drivers may have to deal with new rules in another New Jersey city.
The Elizabeth City Council voted to pass an ordinance to regulate ride-sharing programs like Uber and Lyft.
At the council meeting, Elizabeth cabbies expressed their concern about the programs and said that the Uber drivers should face the same regulations that they do.
“They have no commercial license…They have no background [check]” says taxi driver Said Mohammed.
The ordinance that was introduced Tuesday evening passed unanimously, but it was only a first reading. The City Council will hear more testimony before it will officially be passed.
Uber officials tell News 12 New Jersey that they have not received any official notices from the city.
