Transportation Network Company Legislation

Update: City Council passed laws in November 2019 concerning transportation network companies (TNCs) such as Uber and Lyft. The Seattle TNC Ordinances are effective through December 31, 2022. Beginning on January 1, 2023, the Seattle TNC Ordinances will no longer apply to TNCs such as Uber and Lyft due to Washington State House Bill 2076, which establishes new statewide requirements concerning TNCs. The Washington State Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) is responsible for enforcing these new requirements. Many of the statewide TNC driver protections take effect January 1, 2023. For more information, go to L&I’s TNC Drivers’ Rights page.
