As the Metropolitan Taxicab Commission (MTC) considers altering its for-hire vehicle code to allow the entry of low-price TNC services, such as UberX and Lyft, it should consider the benefits these companies can bring to Saint Louis City and County (hereafter simply “Saint Louis”). These companies already have proven themselves to be popular in hundreds of cities in the United States and around the world. Saint Louis could follow the examples of these cities, now including Kansas City, in reducing regulations to allow broad TNC market entry.
