BEND, Ore. (AP) - City officials in Bend and Redmond are looking to entice Uber to town by changing city ordinances that would pave the way for ride-sharing services.

The Bulletin reports (https://is.gd/jLR8yh ) that both cities are looking into additional and changes to city code that would make it easier for transportation network companies to establish businesses.

Both Redmond and Bend will see proposals related to ride sharing before the city council in October.

Uber spokesman Jon Isaacs says Redmond will be the key to the company’s Central Oregon services, as most of the requests for service the company receives are from people who have arrived at the Redmond Airport.

Lyft is also looking to expand in Oregon, if legislation passes to make it easier for the service to operate.
