as of July 15th, do we need to obtain PTC driver license?
Not a drivers license, but just a ride share license from city. supposedly it is like $15, again supposedly Uber going to pay it. it would probably cost the city a billion dollars and years to build the system to bill + collect, know about expiry, etc.

as UberX do we need to have one as well?
You don't need one...Uber pays the fees and the city has your details on file. No one will issue anything yet. They might have something in the app same as insurance would be optimal.

When do regulations take effect in Toronto?

Toronto’s ridesharing regulations take effect on July 15, 2016.
Uber Email FAQ:


What changes impact driver-partners most?



  • There are four key changes that you need to be aware of in order to ensure that you will be eligible to keep driving in Toronto after July 15th.
  • 1. Vehicle Year - To drive passengers in the City of Toronto, you will need to be driving a 2009 or newer vehicle. A vehicle older than 2009 may still qualify for Uber EATS
  • 2. Vehicle Inspection - All vehicles 2009 or newer, that will be picking up passengers, must pass a Safety Standards Certificate inspection in 2016 (an MTO inspection that is different from Uber’s past inspection).
    Uber does not cover cost of repairs if they are needed to pass the MTO inspection.
  • 3. Screening Process - If you signed up for Uber before the start of 2016, you will need to go through a new screening process for criminal records and motor vehicle records (background screening results are refreshed annually).
  • 4. Identify your Vehicle - You'll also need a branded, removable sticker for the back window of your vehicle to show you’re driving with Uber. We'll send you more information about this later in the month, once the city issues a PTC (Private Transportation Company) license for you.

The Uber team will continue to send updates on what Toronto regulations mean for you. Expect more information in the coming weeks. As always, we are available to answer your questions, and the best way to get a fast response is by visiting help.uber.com

Key, your car, won't let you cut into their lane, box you in on purpose etc etc. So much can go wrong with labelling your car as an uber vehicle.
after a while everything will be settled

So basically, they are saying, drive illegally while we obtain you the license.

Doubt it will ever be regulated the city is refusing to license pool trips, one of many issues here.I suggest any plans you have for Uber being a regulated,respected good paying gig make other plans and move on. As you can tell this companies morals,honesty and ethics are plummeting faster than asteroid.

Where did you see/read that pool was not going to be licensed? I never noticed that being brought up. I thought that was a major selling point Uber was making: reducing congestion, good for the environment, etc.
