Last week in Council, Councillor Farrell voted in favour of allowing ride sharing services to operate in Calgary. Ride sharing services, such as Uber, Lyft, and Sidecar, are part of a future of increased transportation choices. The City's responsibility is to ensure that ride sharing services are safe for passengers, drivers, and Calgarians in general, not to limit competition.

City Administration will now draft amendments to the bylaw that covers taxis and limousines, to allow for safe and properly regulated ride sharing services. For more details, visit the City's webpage.
