Mississauga just banned Uber
Less than two weeks after Toronto officially regulated ride-sharing services, the City of Mississauga has banned Uber in a unanimous council vote that requires such vehicles to adhere to the same rules upheld by traditional taxis.
This means that Uber must cease operations in the city immediately. If the company agrees to do so, however, there might be a way back into the Mississauga market. In a secondary vote, council agreed that should Uber comply with today's decision, it would order a committee to look into the possibility of implementing a ride-sharing pilot program this fall.
There's no guarantee that such a pilot will happen, particularly given that Uber has decided to buck some municipal requests like this in the past. So far, no one from the company has commented on the vote or what it plans to do in Mississauga.
