Nevada’s Draft Rules for Ridesharing Providers Suggest $300K Fee

August 6, 2015

Before Uber, Lyft and other so-called transportation network companies can rev up to offer rides in Nevada, a state agency’s draft rules have a few more steps to navigate.

The Nevada Transportation Authority this week submitted 15-pages of draft regulations to the Legislative Counsel Bureau.

The regulations still face a future public hearing and approval by state lawmakers on the Legislative Commission.

The draft rules don’t appear to restrict where ride-hailing cars can pick up or drop off passengers. It also doesn’t address a company’s ability to charge surge-pricing during peak travel times.
