Two New Jersey state senators said Friday they will introduce legislation to establish standards for the fast-growing ride-hailing industry.
Sens. Paul Sarlo and Joseph Kyrillos announced the bipartisan bill will be introduced Monday.
They said legislation is needed for consistency and safety for companies like Uber, Lyft and Gett that use a digital network to connect riders with drivers. Approximately 20,000 drivers in New Jersey already work for ride-hailing companies.
Uber recently reached agreements with Hackensack University Medical Center and the city of Newark.
