Committee members approved revisions that uphold the City’s public safety concerns while continuing to lower the barrier to entry for independent drivers who wish to work with a Transportation Network Company (TNC) such as Uber or Lyft.

The new code will make it easier for drivers to become permitted with the City.

The proposed ordinance lowers the individual driver permit fee to $100 (after the company pays $40,000 fee), sets up a streamlined permitting process and enables the City to accept a TNC’s surplus insurance policy.

The City of Kansas City, Missouri, welcomes new technology to the market and the proposed revisions include language that recognizes the unique nature of TNC’s.
We want the embrace the technology while protecting public safety.
