Our mission is to bring ride-hailing services like UBER or Lyft to HRM by July 1, 2019

The terms ridesharing, ride-hailing, transportation network companies, Uber & Lyft are often used interchangeably. The technically proper term for Uber, Lyft, and others is ride hailing, which provides citizens with an alternative to traditional taxis.

Ride hailing companies function through mobile applications that manage ordering, pricing, payment, tipping, route tracking from car assignment to drop-off, and driver and passenger ratings.

Many cities enjoy a mix of public transit, traditional taxis and ride-hailing companies like Uber and Lyft as transportation options for the public.
