Toronto’s City Council voted last week to crack down on Uber drivers, but that isn’t stopping the ride service from expanding its offerings to include a new car-pooling service during the Pan Am Games.
Uber said it realized there was no better time to try out its UberPool service in Toronto – despite the political oppositions.
“We saw a unique case with the Pan Am Games, when the city was at its busiest and roads were at their most congested,” Ian Black, GM of Uber Toronto, said.
UberPool lets passengers share their ride – and its cost – with another rider who is taking a similar route.
The option already exists in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, and Paris.
Would you use this service? Do you see anything wrong with this car-pooling service?
