A judge says the ride-sharing app Lyft will have to meet certain requirements before it can operate in New York City.

The Taxi and Limousine Commission must approve Lyft's app and operators of its dispatching system.

The judge said Friday that if Lyft does not meet the conditions by July 25, she will issue a temporary restraining order to prevent it from operating while a lawsuit is being heard.

According to the Daily News, company and state officials agreed that Lyft could keep functioning in Rochester and Buffalo if it provided information on  acceptable insurance carriers by the end of the business day on Friday.

It then must prove that its drivers will have adequate coverage.

Lyft had no immediate comment.
