The City of Calgary has finally granted ride sharing app, Uber, a transportation network company license to operate under the current bylaw.
There are still some tweaks being made, and until those are resolved Uber says it won’t be picking up people in Calgary.
Councillor Evan Woolley stated there needs to be as few barriers as possible, in order for the drivers to join the system, and there needs to be a frame work that keeps Calgarians safe.
According to the city, drivers aren’t yet licensed to drive for Uber, and even when they have been they still need to apply to get court injunction against them lifted.
