City sends cease-and-desist to Lyft, Uber

Lyft

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis has put the brakes on popular ride-sharing services, saying the businesses don’t have  proper permits to operate.

A cease-and-desist notice was sent out to companies like Uber and Lyft.

As easy as just using a smart phone app, the services allow people to get rides from private drivers and pay them for the lift.

In Memphis, it’s become more popular than taking a taxi because it’s often a lot cheaper.

Lyft tells us it hopes to work things out with city leaders so it can resume service in Memphis.
