Q: Why did the City take so long to allow UBER to operate in Calgary?

Uber began operating illegally in Calgary without insurance, background checks for drivers and vehicle inspections. The City took legal action to halt Uber’s operations in Calgary to protect the public.  The City and Uber reached an agreement which required Uber to having insurance, background checks for Uber driver and vehicle inspections. The City also required Uber pay licensing fees to cover its costs for regulating Uber.

Uber has operated successfully in Calgary ever since these basic requirements were put in place to protect public safety.
