Plans to repeal Lexington’s taxi regulations cleared a hurdle Tuesday. Members of the city’s Planning and Public Safety Committee have been weighing doing away with the rules to level the playing field for traditional cab services and new ride-sharing companies Lyft and Uber.

Lexington’s Urban County Council did not take action on proposed regulations for ride-sharing services such as Uber and Lyft this week.

State regulators are preparing emergency regulations that will go into effect next month to govern ride sharing companies like Uber and Lyft.

The rise of ride-sharing services in Lexington and the rest of the country has led to complaints from taxi services and some concerned lawmakers.
