What Is The Difference Between A Taxi And A Rideshare?

Rideshare is the latest addition to public transportation in many cities throughout the United States. The concept is simple. You access a rideshare company by using an app you download on your cell phone to request a ride. A rideshare driver near your location will be sent your information. If the driver accepts the job, you receive a confirmation with the driver’s information and photograph. The driver picks you up and your credit card is charged through the app — no need for cash or tipping. Seems easy enough?

The main difference between a taxi and a rideshare is that taxis are heavily regulated by the state. Some people believe that rideshare services are simply trying to cut corners and avoid complying with regulations. Can this create a problem in the event of an accident?
