Under local regulations for Toronto, all partners must display an Uber decal on their vehicle while online. Place one on your rear passenger windshield facing outward. You can remove it when you decide to go offline and save it for the next time. Pro tip: keep the paper it comes with to place your sticker on when not in use.
By law, you must display this decal on the right and left rear passenger door windows of your vehicle. This decal is intended to help keep riders and cyclists safe and serve as friendly reminder to look for bikes before opening the vehicle door.
Only display this decal if you have a device that can record audio and/or video footage of the passenger. If you do, then by law you must display this decal on the right and left passenger rear door windows of your vehicle.
Option 1: Pick it up at your nearest Greenlight Spot
Option 2: Re-order in your app
