Town of Innisfil and Uber Launch Canada's First Ridesharing-Transit Partnership

via MIS - The Town of Innisfil and Uber launched Canada's first ridesharing-transit partnership on May 15. This partnership will not only encourage residents to access local transit hubs but will help them get around town and explore the community.

Through this partnership, the Town of Innisfil will subsidize a portion of the fare for all trips taken by residents within Innisfil, while offering additional subsidies for rides going to and from transit hubs. In addition, the Town of Innisfil has also partnered with Barrie Taxi as part of this new on-demand transit model to provide accessible rides.

 "We are excited to launch this new solution to provide our residents with safe, accessible and reliable transportation," said Innisfil Mayor Gord Wauchope. "Rather than place a bus on the road to serve just a few residents, we are moving ahead with a better service that can transport people from all across our town to wherever they need to go."
