Technology has brought us options across all areas of life and transportation is no different. Traditional taxis and public transportation have been options in our cities for as long as anybody currently in the workforce can remember. Then, five years ago, Uber changed the game when it launched its ride-sharing program in Canada. Since then, Lyft also added to the competition by setting up in some of the country’s major cities.
While Uber and Lyft provide a convenient, often lower-cost service, some people still prefer the security of a cab (especially since the competition have forced them to improve their service). And others are content paying much lower prices and riding the bus, train or streetcar to get from place-to-place.
In this month’s contractor quick poll, we want to know your preference. When your own car or bike is not an option, your destination is beyond walking distance and there is no friend who can drive you, who do you pay to get you there?
