AB 1360, as introduced, Ting. Charter-party carriers of passengers: individual fare exemption.
The Passenger Charter-Party Carriers’ Act generally requires charges for transportation to be offered or afforded by a charter-party carrier of passengers to be computed and assessed on a vehicle mileage or time-of-use basis, rather than on an individual-fare basis, subject to certain exemptions.
This bill would also exempt from these provisions a rideshare program operated by a transportation network company that arranges a ride among multiple passengers who share the ride in whole or in part, provided that the fare for each passenger is less than the fare that would be charged to a single passenger traveling alone.
Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: no. State-mandated local program: no.
