Virginia Votes for Ridesharing

Shout-out to drivers cruising the Commonwealth: Yesterday, Governor Terry McAuliffe signed into law a bill authorizing peer-to-peer transportation in Virginia.

Our model already meets the requirements of the law, which requires us to screen and background-check drivers. Safety is and has always been Lyft’s top priority, and background checks have been a fixture of our onboarding process since the first SF drivers donned a ’stache.

We owe a huge thanks to the Lyft drivers and passengers of Virginia who’ve supported us since our launch over a year ago, and look forward to more regulatory victories in cities across the country.
