NYS and Lyft make amends with pricey settlement

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A popular ride-sharing service is attempting to make amends with New York State through a settlement.

The company agreed to pay $300,000 to settle allegations that it broke New York State laws. The ride-sharing service allows users to book rides from nearby drivers.

In 2014 NYS Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office sued Lyft, claiming it was operating without requiring its drivers to have commercial licenses or proper insurance.

Lyft says it wants to continue servicing New York State.
