People in 67 countries and over 400 cities worldwide have embraced ridesharing, using Uber to complete 1 million trips every single day in cities like Seattle, Portland, Edmonton and Toronto.
But here in British Columbia, we are missing out!
Consumers love Uber because it connects them to a safe, reliable and affordable ride at the tap of a button. Drivers love Uber because it provides higher earnings and greater flexibility. Cities love Uber because it gives residents and visitors a reliable ride when they need one, reduces congestion and decreases impaired driving.
Uber is a new business model, and existing regulations have not kept pace with technology. That’s why Uber wants to work with officials across British Columbia to develop common sense regulations for ridesharing that recognize and support the benefits this new business model brings to riders, drivers and cities alike.
This is your chance to send a message to elected officials across the province that British Columbia should not be left behind.
