On Wednesday, December 21st Governor Rick Snyder signed a milestone ridesharing bill package offering ridesharing a more permanent home in Michigan. These bills will help secure Uber’s future in Michigan and allow us to offer more consistent earnings opportunities for drivers across the state.

With this new bill package, there will be updates for Michigan Uber driver-partners. We will be sending you more information on specific requirements in 2017. In the meantime, you can continue to drive around Michigan.

Thank you for your support along the way. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at @Uber_MI on Twitter or help.uber.com.

Details of the Michigan Ridesharing Bill 

Ability to take trips around Michigan. With these unified regulations, you will be able to drive in any city across the state of Michigan. This includes Detroit, Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Lansing, and Flint.

Trade dress to help riders identify your car. As part of Uber’s agreement with Michigan, partners will receive trade dress to display on their vehicles while online. 

In the next couple of months, we will be mailing you Uber trade dress to the address associated with your license. If your address has changed, please reach out to help.uber.com with your current address.

We will also offer trade dress at the Detroit Greenlight Hub or the Grand Rapids Greenlight Hub. Once we have trade dress available, we will email you. 

Annual vehicle inspections. Under the new regulations anyone with a vehicle that is five years old or older will be required to have an annual vehicle inspection done by a third party. If you are in need of a vehicle inspection, we will notify you with preferred partners and the vehicle inspection form.

Airports. You can still do pick up and drop offs at all airports in Michigan. Check out specific airport requirements at DTW, and GRR. We will inform you if any regulations change at any airport in Michigan.
