Signatures for Uber!
On April 13, Ottawa City Council will vote to regulate ridesharing. This is the most important vote that will determine the future of ridesharing in the city.
There will be loud voices on the other side of the debate that want to stop progress. They want to reverse the gains we’ve made in transportation in the last 4 years. We think this is wrong. Ottawa should join other progressive cities around the world by embracing ridesharing and the benefits it brings to cities.
The story of Uber is really a story of Ottawa and the people who move it forward. It’s a story about how:
- Thousands of driver partners who use a smartphone to make extra income on their own schedule.
- The accessibility community and older adults are getting a reliable and affordable transportation option with uberASSIST.
- Ridesharing brings much needed transportation options to communities that have been previously ignored by taxi and live too far away from reliable public transit.
And most importantly, it’s about making sure our loved ones have a safe way to get home.
If council embraces ridesharing by passing smart regulations, we can continue our work to help make Ottawa an even better place to live.
As an Ottawa resident, you can make a difference by speaking up on how ridesharing is making our city a better place to live. Help make sure our city moves forwards, not backwards, on ridesharing.
Sign this petition, send a tweet, send an email, and make a call to your city councillor to tell them to support smart ridesharing regulations.
Together, we’ll keep Ottawa moving.
