On Friday, the California state legislature passed a bill that would increase the uptake of zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) deployed by ride-hailing services such as Uber and Lyft.
Introduced by State Sen. Nancy Skinner, S.B.1014 would direct the California Air Resources Board and the California Public Utilities Commission to adopt and implement targets to reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emitted per passenger mile for rides arranged through transportation network companies, the senator says.
