Ridesharing is about to be a little cheaper this week because Uber is offering discounts on rides in Brampton and the surrounding area.
Uber is offering 50% off 10 rides to customers in Brampton, Toronto, Mississauga and the surrounding area through June 25 at 6 a.m.
The offer will be automatically added to riders’ accounts and will be valid on UberX, UberPOOL, UberXL, UberWAV, and UberASSIST.
Each ride will be discounted to a maximum of $6.
Meanwhile, on the political front, Uber, Lyft, and other private transportation companies are finally getting legalized in Brampton.
Two years ago after a heated council meeting with local taxicab drivers, Brampton City Council asked ridesharing companies to cease operations in the city. Brampton’s city staff is slated to bring forward a new bylaw this week that will allow companies to operate.
