Uber Canada announced today that it plans to seek a license and launch their popular ridesharing app in Halifax before the end of 2020.
“We’ve long heard about the excitement for Uber in Halifax. We look forward to providing Haligonians access to the same safe, affordable ride options and flexible earning opportunities that we do in over 10,000 cities across Canada and the globe,” Matthew Price, general manager of Uber Canada said in a statement Thursday.
The announcement comes two years following the successful launch of Uber Eats in the region.
Before the app is available to the public, Uber is encouraging qualified drivers to register and complete the sign-up process at drive.uber.com.
Interested drivers should bring a completed Driver’s Medical Examination to an Access Nova Scotia office to complete their Class 4 licence process as soon as possible.
In addition to the Medical Exam and Class 4 license, drivers require the following to access the Uber platform:
- The legal ability to work in Canada
- Criminal record check
- Child Abuse Registry Check
- Vulnerable Sector Check
