A proposed new taxi bylaw for Waterloo Region could be the first municipal legislation to regulate ride sharing services, like Uber, in Ontario.

Under the new bylaw all Uber drivers would be required to have an auxiliary taxi driver licence, issued by the region. To be applicable for the licence, drivers would be required to have a GPS and a closed circuit television system installed in their vehicles, and commercial auto insurance policies for a minimum of $2 million.

Thanks for the update momo14. As with your news today, I often find out about the latest developments through contributors like you. If this bylaw could convince Uber to provide real commercial insurance that protected drivers, passengers and the public for the entire app-on time and if companies offering personal insurance would accept this hybrid insurance model, then it would be a positive development on the insurance issue. And hopefully the driver's phone would count as the GPS and a dashcam would count as the closed circuit television system.
