One Toronto city councillor says Pan Am Games visitors should steer clear of using services like uberX during their stay in Toronto unless they want to risk a massive fine.
Coun. Jim Karygiannis claims that uberX passengers could face a penalty between $300 to $20,000 for using the ride-hailing service.
“I want to take this time to welcome visitors to Toronto who are here to enjoy the Pan Am Games as well as all of the other cultural festivals & events occurring in our city.
I am a strong believer in improved passenger safety and consumer protection. My statement today serves to achieve both.
