Uber in Brandon?

Hi, I have a few questions about Uber and I'm also seeking opinions about Uber as well!  
 
Does Brandon currently have Uber drivers?  
Is Uber even allowed to be in Brandon?  
What does everyone think about having it in Brandon?  
I know we have a lot of taxis here already so if I or anyone considered driving for Uber would it be worth it? Would anyone use this service over a Taxi?

Uber

Uber is not in Brandon and it won't be coming anytime soon.  
 
Be nice to see maybe something similar but personally not a fan of Uber.  
 
We did use Tappcar in Winnipeg a couple weeks ago. It was good and was quite different then riding in run down, smoke stinky cabs in Brandon.

Thanks

Thanks for the reply! Ironically I just found a list of all of the cities that currently has Uber and you are right. Brandon is not among the list Unfortunately neither is TappCar

17 Cities

With only 17 Cities in Canada with Uber, I'm not at all surprised that Brandon is not on the list. They have yet to be in BC and Saskatchewan as well.

Uber

Is way better then any cab. They keep their cars clean because they are their own. Cheaper or the same price as a cab.

Thank you for the info...

If it does come to Brandon, can't see the taxi's being able to keep a business running anymore.

population

I think some people forget how small our city is actually. No point of Uber or another company like Uber to come here. Having our 5 taxi companies is good enough for our size.

Waitn' for the weekend

Consider

You have consider mpi rules and regulations, uber didn't go to Winnipeg because of that. They do have a call service in Winnipeg now but they have a special agreement with mpi (Winnipeg only)
