Re: Ridesharing regulations
From: Paul Steinberg, Vice President, Carma (previously Avego Corporation)
Carma operates Real-Time Ridesharing projects funded by the Federal Government in San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Austin and Washington DC. Carma is bound by, and compliant with all federal, state and local laws and regulations; Carma has never received a citation or cease and desist letter from any regulator.
Ridesharing occurs when you pickup someone, drive to your destination, and park your vehicle until you go home. If you get compensated more than it costs to operate your vehicle, then you crossed the line to become a for hire driver. – Captain Carpool
