The Longview City Council approved the use of ride sharing services, like Uber, Lyft and Fare, to be used in Longview.

So far, only Fare has asked to get the permit required to offer their services in the city. That permit is $250.

Taxi companies in Longview will have to pay that permit as well.

Resident Courtney Bradley told CBS 19, "I think it would be great for Uber to come down here, you would have better Friday and Saturday nights. I would even consider becoming a driver."
