Uber is launching a transit-like option on Tuesday that lets users pay a flat $5 to travel with other commuters along four specific routes.

The service, called UberHOP, will use large SUVs or mini vans that can carry up to five passengers from the same spot on a fixed route.

UberHOP will travel from Liberty Village, Fort York, Cityplace and the Distillery District, all going to the financial district in the morning and back to the neighbourhoods in the afternoon/evening.

The shuttle-like service is scheduled to operate during rush hour only, between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. and from 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

The service was launched last week in Seattle.

    Why doesn’t mr Tory say anything about the high risk of taking überx. All I hear is that it’s the new technology, and we gotta adapted to change. He’s always avoiding saying. There not licensed, no back ground checks, no safety checks. And most of all. Who’s is this person picking me up? Not mention, no insurance. He keep on dancing around it. To me, something’s funny with mr.Tory &uber. Families are suffering. The same families that voted for him. IT’S ILLIGAL.
