PRC to develop new rules for Lyft, Uber

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The state Public Regulation Commission says it will develop new rules for ride-sharing services like Lyft and Uber.

At a meeting Wednesday morning, Lyft asked the PRC to remove the cease and desist order it implemented back in May.

The PRC denied that request.

The commission says the service does not meet the state’s definition of a specialized passenger service.

The PRC has also denied Uber’s application to operate here.

However, the PRC says later this month, it will begin developing new rules for these services that will bring them under state regulation.

KRQE News 13 spoke with a Lyft driver, she says it’s a step in the right direction.

Lyft says it looks forward to working with the PRC in developing new rules and regulations. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
