Transportation Solutions for Western New Hampshire

For over a year, I have been working with members from both parties, and transportation professionals, to put together a regulatory package that will allow Uber, Lyft, and other transportation network companies to operate in New Hampshire.  If you have lived in Sullivan County for a while, you have seen conventional cab companies come and go.  There just isn’t the volume necessary to sustain these businesses.  We hope that the ability to work part time will bring Uber/Lyft service here and provide more rides.  While very few people need transportation (disabled, lost license, car broke down, etc.), the people who do need it have an urgent need for it.  I hope that this new service will provide income and transportation opportunities for our neighbors.

Uber press release:

“Today marks an important moment where New Hampshire has embraced innovation and options in enacting smart, sensible ridesharing regulations. On behalf of the Uber New Hampshire team, I’d like to thank Senator Donna Soucy, Representatives John Hunt and Steve Smith, and the leadership teams in both the House and Senate for their hard work in crafting and backing this important legislation, as well as Governor Maggie Hassan for her support of this bill.  We are also grateful for advocates such as the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce for their strong support of ridesharing. We look forward to keeping New Hampshire moving by continuing to connect riders and driver-partners so that riders get a ride when they need it, and driver-partners can earn money to support their families all at the push of a button.”
