Did Toronto City Council Hear You?

Will City Council allow Uber to stay in Toronto? It all comes down to tomorrow’s vote.

In lead up to Toronto Council’s vote on ridesharing, we launched a campaign asking you, the people of Toronto, to share your own story of how ridesharing is building a better Toronto.

And that’s exactly what you did.

Over the past 5 weeks, Torontonians have engaged City Council in extraordinary ways:

  • Over 110 local restaurants signed a letter explaining how ridesharing–through UberEATS–keeps their business alive and thriving by providing an innovative food delivery system
  • Leaders in the accessibility community expressed how ridesharing makes Toronto a more equal city; with options like uberWAV and uberASSIST for riders and by providing important earning opportunities for those that are hearing impaired
  • Over 100 of Toronto’s leading innovators and entrepreneurs signed a letter explaining how this vote will have an impact on Toronto’s reputation as a city that embraces innovation
  • Thousands of Toronto’s Uber riders and driver-partners have contacted their councillors to share their personal stories of how Uber is making their lives better

We greatly appreciate your time and dedication to making Toronto a better place for all to live.

Did City Council Hear You?

With the vote tomorrow, the only remaining question is: Did your City Councillor hear you?

You still have time to make sure your councillor supports smart ridesharing regulations:

Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS.
