An Uber That Lets You Travel Between Cities Is Coming To Toronto
Carpooling beyond the city.
Toronto will be getting a new ride-share service that operates strictly between cities.
OpenRide is a start-up company that aims to be the first ride-share service to offer rides primarily along the 400-series highways and rural roads.
Because their focus is more on longer distance travel, they are not looking to compete against other ride share services, like Uber, that are already established in the city.
OpenRide opened for service in California in March. Fares went for $20 or less for rides to nearby cities and up to $300 for farther, cross-country rides. Students that go to school within an hour or two of Toronto (ex. London, Waterloo and Kingston) may represent the biggest market for OpenRide.
