    ARGH! The Ants Have Discovered My 'Hood!

    Something happened in the North end of Mississauga in September. I went from being one of a few (happily) lonely LYFT ants in the neighborhood to a bloody-ant-farm. There were not a ton of PINGS before, even as I was often the only driver in my area, but oh, boy, there are zero now. I guess...

    Anyone take off their snow tires yet?

    Hello community, As per PTC licence, we are suppose to keep the tires on until April 30. If I take off my snow tires tomorrow, will i likely get "caught" by a by law officer in Toronto or Mississauga for not having the snow tires on?

    Hello there! Just fresh here, less than 3 minutes ago. Mississauga is just Toronto, so shouldn't be a problem to the question: "where is this place really!" I'd like to share my experience of driving since last 10 years. 2 years with Uber but a solid 8 years as a taxi driver.

    Mississauga=overpopulated w/drivers?

    It seems Sauga has been dying for the last 2 weeks, now I know why: I just downloaded the riders app, and noticed that everywhere I used to go to stage, seems to have already at least 3 drivers already. Does this mean Sauga is saturated? What do you guys think?
