ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– St. Louis’ newest ride sharing service is off the road and instead under a restraining order.
Lawyers for the service, called Lyft, spent the afternoon arguing for a judge to lift the restraining order until a full injunction hearing next month.
The California based company sent a copy of the injunction to Fox 2 Tuesday and says they never received notice or an opportunity to appear in court Monday and defend the company going on to say it violates due process.
The city’s taxi commission says Lyft should be regulated just like licensed cab drivers in order to keep the public safe.
