Car Seat Newark EWR

Do I need a car seat for a toddler to ride Uber/Lyft from EWR to Jersey City? I haven't seen any cars with car seat out of EWR in the apps yet.

It appears that you do need to provide a carseat, or choose a service that can provide one.

I don't believe this is correct. In New Jersey, for hire vehicles are no longer exempt from child seat laws. In New York, there is still an exemption.

You could try Wingz. They now service EWR and you can request a car seat in the instructions section. You schedule in advance and are assigned a driver so you can get your answer before your trip.

You're right, I had forgotten that. I've edited my post.
