(Pittsburgh) -- Attorneys for the state Public Utility Commission have asked a panel of judges to force two ride-share companies to stop operating in Pittsburgh.
The PUC's enforcement arm argues Lyft and Uber are violating state rules that govern paid transportation services.
Uber, Lyft and other ride-share companies use smartphone apps to dispatch drivers who use their own personal vehicles.
PUC enforcement officer Charles Bowser has testified at a hearing in Pittsburgh that allowing the services to operate without state oversight is a "recipe for disaster.''
The companies are fighting the PUC's request for a cease-and-desist order.
Administrative Law Judge Mary Long says a decision will be issued by July 1.
