Vancouver, British Columbia (BI) – The mobile taxi industry is booming in Canada, and with good reason.
The technology has evolved so dramatically that there are now dozens of taxi apps out there for each province and territory, from a handful of popular apps to a handful more.
The industry is growing fast, but there’s still plenty of work to be done, according to the City of Vancouver.
It has launched a pilot project to give people access to an online taxi app that’s available in B.C., Saskatchewan and Manitoba, in order to give them more options to get around.
Uber Canada CEO Travis Kalanick is launching the service in Canada this week, launching it on a pilot basis with the province of B.A. in the hope that the service will eventually expand to other provinces.
Uber currently operates in Canada as a subsidiary of the ride-hailing service Uber Technologies, and is the largest taxi service provider in the country.
Uber is a self-driving vehicle company, which means it is self-drivers, not chauffeurs.
It also offers a vehicle-sharing service called UberPool, which allows passengers to share a car with other drivers and has its own drivers.
Uber has said that it’s working on a fleet of cars that would be able to accommodate drivers from all across the country, and that the company is working to bring all of its vehicles into service by 2021.
Uber said that the province will be launching the pilot program in 2018, but that the pilot will only be available for six months.
Uber’s Vancouver service will be available in Vancouver from the end of April, and will be based in a downtown location that will have its own parking lot.
Drivers will be required to wear a helmet, and be in good physical condition.
The pilot program will be open to anyone who wants to use the service.
Uber CEO Travis Kelton said the service would help people who are not used to using taxis and want to get out of their cars.
“The reality is that we’re seeing that the taxi market has become saturated, and there are just so many options out there,” he said.
“We want to take a step back and look at how do we provide people with access to a more reliable, more affordable option.”
