Uber Toronto

Taxi trade group goes on the offensive against Uber

New, tech-friendly services like Hailo and Uber are quickly taking over our taxi and limo going experience but that doesn't mean those interested in keeping things the status quo are going to sit idly by and watch the industry transform before their eyes. Case in point is the Taxicab, Limousine & Paratransit Association (TLPA - oddly based out of Rockville, Maryland) that's doing what it can to impress upon the public and government that these services aren't in the public's best interest.

Take a look at the embedded document below that TLPA is currently circulating to Toronto media.

What do you think? Does TLPA have a case? Should we be weary of these new services?
