Governor Quinn signed SB 2774 into law today, legislation that provides common sense safety standards for ridesharing in Illinois.
As we shared previously, this groundbreaking piece of legislation focuses on preserving all the benefits of uberX for both riders and drivers. It is also a forward-thinking law that supports innovation in the transportation industry. We are excited that Illinois is setting a precedent with this new law and hope it encourages similar progress in cities and states across the country.
We want to extend our gratitude to Governor Quinn, the Illinois General Assembly, and most importantly to you, our riders and driver partners. Together we are creating safe and reliable transportation alternatives and a better way for drivers to earn a living. Uber on!
