MIDLAND, TX (KWES) -

New regulations for taxi drivers passed through the first vote Tuesday at the Midland City Council meeting.

City of Midland Public Information Officer Sara Bustilloz said the new regulations would allow drivers to negotiate prices with riders, switch from monthly to annual car inspections and lift car age and color restrictions.

Bustilloz says these changes all stem from the return of Uber.

The final vote will be taken at a city council meeting on June 28.
