    Why no Uber XL or Select in Hamilton?

    I find it strange that these services are not offered in areas like Hamilton and Niagara yet they are offered in areas where Uber is not even approved to operate like Orillia, Midland, Collingwood etc that has a much smaller population. Same with Oshawa where there is no approval to operate and...

    How do the Uber/Lyft apps interpret vehicle availability if all logged on vehicles are currently on a call? Does it say that no cars are available the same as it would if there were no drivers logged on?

    Why is the booking fee shown as being charged, then removed?
