Uber launching ridesharing app UberHOP in Toronto
On the heels of last week's Uber versus taxi protest, the American company is launching another service in Toronto that aims to make commuting easier.
For now, it'll cost you a $5 flat fee to use UberHop. The routes will run between CityPlace and the Financial District, the Distillery and the financial district, Liberty Village and the financial district and Fort York and the financial district.
It'll operate from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. Instead of requesting a ride, you'll request to join a route wherein the Uber app will direct you to a meeting spot, likely on a side street to mitigate traffic.
It's easy to see how UberHOP might be enticing to some, especially considering the state of the Queen and King streetcars during rush hour.
