SideCar has acquired Heyride, an Austin, Tex.-based ride-sharing mobile app.
The California Public Utilities Commission today said that it has entered into an agreement with Lyft mobile application, revoking a cease-and-desist order until a rulemaking process addressing ride-sharing apps concludes six months from now.
SideCar, an app that allows users to arrange shared rides, will introduce surge pricing in San Francisco on New Year’s Eve to encourage more users to drive.
It hasn’t been a good week for San Francisco taxi and ride-share apps. On November 9, two taxi drivers filed what they hope will be certified as a class action lawsuit against Uber stemming from its months-old taxi service in the city. And yesterday afternoon, Uber, SideCar and Lyft were fined $20,000 for operating what the state considers unlicensed charter businesses.
