MADISON (WKOW) -- Ride-sharing companies, Uber and Lyft, are being warned once again by Madison officials to follow taxi ordinances.
According to the State Journal, city attorney Michael May told both companies they have until July 11th to share the exact steps they will take to follow the city's taxi ordinances. If they don't, May says the city will take action.
The steps include operating 24 hours a day and having adequate insurance coverage for drivers.
Taxi companies and some city officials say Lyft and Uber are currently acting as unlicensed cabs.
Madison police cited a driver from each company in April for violating taxi ordinances.
