Court Rules In Favour Of Ridesharing In Toronto

Toronto is open for innovation

Posted on: July 6th, 2015

I think that by letting companies like Uber operate in Toronto and keep pushing the limits of innovation and peer to peer technology, Toronto is becoming a hot spot for startups to come here and setup shop in the TDOT.

ONTARIO COURT ALLOWS UBER TO OPERATE IN TORONTO, SUPPORTS RIDESHARING SERVICES

On a statement on it’s blog, Uber noted, “Earlier today, an Ontario court ruled in favour of ridesharing in Toronto and dismissed the City’s case to shut down Uber… This decision means that you can continue to access safe, reliable, and affordable rides through the Uber platform. We also hope that this decision helps further pave the way for ridesharing regulations and we’re excited to continue our work with Mayor Tory and Toronto City Council.”

This is great news for those in Toronto, especially with the Pan Am games coming to the city next week. Uber is also planning to bring UberPool, its carpooling service, to Toronto in the coming days.
