Bill Summary

The bill requires the owner or operator of a carpooling service internet application (internet application) to register annually with the department of transportation. Owners or operators are also required to disclose to users of the internet application that carpooling service companies are not regulated by the state; that the state does not conduct medical examinations, vehicle inspections, or insurance verification in relation to the provision of carpooling service; and that background checks on drivers might not be conducted. The bill also requires that the amount that can be charged to a user through the internet application be reasonably calculated to cover the direct and indirect costs of providing carpooling service and limits the number of passengers that a driver providing carpooling service through the internet application may transport at any one time.

The bill also limits each driver providing carpooling service to one trip per day and defines "carpooling service" as a trip that is at least 23 miles between pick-up and drop-off points and a trip to or from a ski area, regardless of distance.
