Seattle council committee votes rideshare limits
SEATTLE (AP) -- A Seattle City Council transportation committee has voted to limit rideshare car services in the city.
The Seattle Times reports (http://is.gd/CScSPs ) that five council members voted Thursday in favor of a proposal that would limit the number of drivers who could work for Lyft, UberX and Sidecar at any given point in the day. The cap would allow an unlimited number of drivers, but no more than 150 could work at any given time for each company.
The proposal still faces a vote of the full council. That could happen March 10.
