A well informed city specialist could be Uber’s next rival in Ottawa’s authorized ride-requesting market.
Neville Hewage made the oRide application as the city began investigating changing the authorizing framework that manages the taxi business. Following a couple of years taking a shot at the innovation, he presented his application in December to the city for a private transportation organization permit.
In the event that endorsed, it would be just the second PTC permit issued by the City of Ottawa.
So how is a nearby ride-requesting outfit going to go up against a global behemoth like Uber?
