Eugene City Council held a hearing Tuesday night to discuss the ride sharing app, Uber. It's been violating city code since it arrived in Eugene. The council is considering changing the code to accommodate Uber.
If Eugene's public passenger vehicle code is updated, it would allow ride sharing, smart phone applications to charge fares and would require the services to be licensed by the city.
Eugene asked Uber to cease its services in November and has been fining the business 2,000 dollars a day since December 15th.
