TXRidesforHire supports consistent, common sense public safety requirements for all vehicles-for-hire in Texas. We believe passengers deserve the assurance that when they step into a ride-for-hire vehicle – whether transportation network company, limo or taxi – the driver’s identity has been verified through a fingerprint check and they’ve passed a thorough criminal background screening led by a government entity. Given the growing number of attacks reported by transportation network company passengers throughout the U.S., we urge elected officials in Texas to take this matter very seriously and act to ensure riders’ safety by requiring fingerprinting for all ride-for-hire drivers.
