Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin and U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin have introduced Uber to West Virginia by hailing the state’s first ride. After a ride from Capitol Market in Charleston to the state Capitol, the two announced Uber’s launch in Charleston and Morgantown yesterday afternoon. Uber plans to expand elsewhere. A new law allows companies like Uber and Lyft to start offering rides in the state on July 1. West Virginia joined the scores of states that allow the ride-booking, phone app-based services.
