Along with the rest of residents….

Mississauga council has suspended all ride-sharing services, including the hotly debated (and popular) UberX. After delaying making a decision on the pressing matter, council voted today to order all non-traditional taxi companies to cease picking up passengers. New rules (not Uber-friendly ones) were adopted. As of now, ride-sharing services that want to operate in the city have to follow the same rules and regulations that traditional taxis and limos are subject to.

Mayor Bonnie Crombie has indicated there’s still hope for the embattled service. If Uber and other services suspend operations immediately, council has said that they’ll form a committee to look at a ridesharing pilot project. If Uber complies with the order, the committee will come back to council in September with some ideas regarding the possible initiative.

In the mean time, if you’re partying in Mississauga, save a few bucks and take a cab or get your parents to pick you up or drop you off.  Way to go Mississauga.  Way to embrace technology and the future of human culture.  If it was up to the current council, we’d still be using VCR’s.

If you agree with this and think they should operate with the same rules as cabs do, comment below!
