Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Center for Local Governance Director James Quintero is available to discuss the ridesharing regulations approved yesterday by the Fort Worth City Council. The new regulations will impose a much lighter regulatory burden on transportation network companies and instead favor a more free-market approach.

“In too many Texas towns, city governments are driving out companies like Uber and Lyft with heavy-handed and duplicative regulations,” said Quintero. “But the city of Fort Worth has just shown that there’s another, better way forward that’s a win-win for all. Fort Worth’s embrace of a more relaxed regulatory environment, one that favors competition and the free-market, is clearly moving in the right direction.”
