Columbus Sues To Block Operations Of Second Rideshare Service

The city of Columbus is asking a judge to block the app-based ride-sharing service called Lyft from operating in the city. Officials say the company lacks adequate insurance and does not follow codes regulating taxi and limo drivers. The city presented its case against the ride-sharing service Uber yesterday, with a judge's ruling pending. Uber  is charging a one dollar safety fee in Cincinnati to cover insurance costs, vehicle inspections and driver education. Uber has been under fire for its vague insurance coverage since launching in Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland.
