GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- The Grants Pass city council has approved the use of ridesharing services, like Uber and Lyft to operate within the city.

Wednesday night the city council voted to level the playing field for rideshares, limos, and taxi services.

It's unclear at this point when drivers could start picking up passengers within city limits. 

The city says Uber provided Grants Pass with a letter encouraging such an ordinance.
