Ride-sharing service Lyft applies to operate in Shreveport
SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Lyft is one step closer to coming to Shreveport.
The ride-sharing service applied Friday to operate in the city, officials confirmed late Monday.
The move comes after City Council members removed a liability clause from the city's regulations.
They got rid of the hold-harmless clause last month.
Hold-harmless is an agreement that requires a company to absolve the city of any liability if the company or one of its employees causes harm to another.
Ride-sharing services have been launching in other cities, including Uber in Texarkana and Monroe.
