Papan Bill to Regulate Peer to Peer Car Rental Services

Assembly Bill 893 will ensure that vehicles rented through third party platforms similarly pay local and state fees that support vital public services, placing the peer to peer platforms on a level playing field with traditional car rental services. These include local levies such as those imposed in San Mateo County that help address local needs and fees supporting the California Office of Tourism which markets California as a destination, helping to attract billions of dollars in spending by visitors.

“Many industries and public agencies that provide vital public services are in part supported and benefit from car rental fees,” said Papan. “Peer to Peer car rental services represent a dynamic innovation in the market but can no longer operate without paying their fair share like traditional car rental operators do.”
