Both Lyft and Uber are pleased with the provincial government’s decision to approve regulations that will enable ridesharing to complement existing transportation services in Saskatchewan. Lyft says they look forward to working with local municipalities to develop laws that will bring their services to the province in the near future. As for Uber, they also say they look forward to working with municipalities, especially Saskatoon and Regina to update laws so transportation services like Uber can launch in Saskatchewan.
Earlier today (thurs), the provincial government approved regulations which means these companies can operate as long as they follow the requirements set out by the municipality they are in. The regulations take effect on December 14th.
