Rideshare service expands to 5 more cities

Posted:
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The rideshare service Uber is expanding to five more Wisconsin cities.

Uber already operates in Madison, Milwaukee and Green Bay. Thursday it rolls out in Wisconsin Dells, Lake Geneva, Racine, Kenosha and Waukesha. The Journal Sentinel says the expansion comes just weeks after a law went into effect that creates a statewide standard for the rideshare companies, including Lyft.

The law requires companies to buy a $5,000 license, conduct driver background checks and get liability insurance. It prohibits cities from imposing local regulations.
