Innisfil adopts Uber its alternative to public transit system

Innisfil, located approximately 45 minutes north of Toronto, is the first municipality in Canada to have a partnership with the ride-sharing service Uber.

The agreement, which will begin on May 1, will offer fares to locals set between $3 and $5.

The town will pay Uber the remainder of the fare, which is expected to cost approximately $100,000 in the first year. That number is a far cry from the cost of a transit system, town officials say.
