Deets . . .
Kansas City’s Regulated Industries Division informed the San Francisco-based transportation company that it is not in compliance with the city’s code of ordinances. A letter by Regulated Industries Manager Jim Ready, obtained through a public records request by the Kansas City Business Journal, said that the rideshare service is in violation of several ordinances concerning the use of third-party transportation applications, the soliciting and acceptance of passengers, and the assessment of fares.
“Based on the ordinances above, your company is not able to provide the service as described on your website,” Ready said in a letter addressed to a representative of Lyft.
