Uber makes 150,000 September trips across Ottawa
Uber says its Ottawa drivers made 150,000 trips last month, highlighting the company’s deep cut into the local taxi market.
Uber Canada GM Ian Black said the results after a year of operations in Ottawa are better than what the ride-sharing service expected before hitting the road in October 2014.
“Ottawa was one of our fastest launches ever in North America,” Black said Monday in an interview with the Sun.
“Very clearly the product hit a need in the city, so it took off much faster than expected.”
