Ride-share companies to operate despite order

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Two ride-share companies say they will operate in Pittsburgh through the Independence Day weekend despite an order to shut down.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review ( ) says Lyft and Uber both plan to continue offering rides.

Earlier this week, two administrative law judges granted the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission's request for cease-and-desist orders against the San Francisco-based companies. The PUC says Lyft and Uber are violating state rules that govern paid transportation services.

The companies have seven days to answer the judges' orders.

Uber, Lyft and other ride-share companies use smartphone apps to dispatch drivers who use their own personal vehicles to give people rides, and then share the fares they collect with the companies.
