LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — State regulators have cited three people in suburban Omaha in connection with ridesharing, a smartphone-based service that's not allowed in Nebraska.

Public Service Commission director Mark Breiner told the Lincoln Journal Star that commission investigators on Wednesday ticketed three suspected Lyft drivers in Sarpy County on suspicion of four violations, including driving without a commission permit.

Lyft spokeswoman Chelsea Wilson says Lyft will help the drivers fight the citations.

On Thursday Uber announced that its UberX service would be joining Lyft, its ridesharing rival, in offering service in Lincoln.

The commissioner has told the two San Francisco-based companies that they need the commission's permission to offer services in Nebraska.
