Chatter about ride sharing services like Uber and Lyft finally making their way to the Duluth area has been on-going for what seems like forever. But according to a report from the Duluth New Tribune earlier this month, there seems to be some movement in the process, albeit slow movement, at best.
Before either company can finally have a presence in the Duluth community, the city must first get various ride sharing regulations in place, which is apparently something that won’t happen until the end of April at the very earliest.
As noted by the News Tribune, the Duluth City Councilor has been working closely with both Lyft and Uber regarding a ride sharing ordinance, which should be ready to be presented at the council’s next meeting on March 13th. Should the ordinance finally pass, which can’t happen until a secondary reading on March 27th, it can officially go into effect 30 days later, which means Duluth residents can finally enjoy the benefits of ride sharing beginning at the end of April.
