Rider-sharing services Uber, Lyft back to being illegal in Philly

The agency that oversees Philadelphia’s taxis says it will continue enforcing restrictions against unlawful ride-hailing services, including UberX and Lyft. Philadelphia Parking Authority officials said Tuesday evening they’re giving illegal transportation network companies 48 hours’ notice before enforcement resumes. The state legislature’s temporary authorization of ride-hailing companies expired last week. The parking authority didn’t elaborate on how it will resume enforcing ride-hailing service restrictions. Sting operations have been conducted in the past. The agency says it’s also easing some regulations that taxi companies have said make it harder for them to compete.
