Driving with Innisfil Transit

Residents of Innisfil are able to get a safe and affordable ride, on demand. Innisfil Transit matches riders going in the same direction so they can share a vehicle and the cost of the ride. For drivers, this means more rides and more fares.

Drive when you want
Earn what you need

  1. Set your own schedule
    You can drive with Uber anytime, day or night, 365 days a year. When you drive is always up to you, so it never interferes with the important things in your life.
  2. Make more at every turn
    Trip fares start with a base amount, then increase with time and distance. And when demand is higher than normal, drivers make more.
  3. Let the app lead the way
    Just tap and go. You’ll get turn-by-turn directions, tools to help you make more, and 24/7 support.

What is Innisfil Transit?

To make the service as efficient as possible, Innisfil Transit was built on top of uberPOOL, our carpooling service. Riders request their Innisfil Transit ride through the Uber app, and can be matched with other riders travelling on a similar path. Each rider pays their own fare and drivers receive multiple fares added together. 

Like uberX, drivers will receive a request through the app and given directions to pick up the first rider. If we’re able to find another rider going the same direction, you’ll receive a second request in the app. Directions will be updated automatically.

Vehicle registration

Uber accepts both official and temporary registration documents. The vehicle does not need to be registered in your name to qualify.

Next step: Complete a vehicle inspection

  1. Find an inspection centre
    Find your nearest inspection centre and make an appointment for a vehicle inspection. Our preferred locations are below but you’re welcome to use your own mechanic. If you do, be sure to visit a Motor Vehicle Inspection Station that can issue a ‘Safety Standards Certificate’.
  2. Complete a vehicle inspection
    Bring your vehicle in for the inspection. If your vehicle passes the inspection, the mechanic will give you a Safety Standards Certificate (SSC). Note that Uber does not cover the cost of the inspection, or any repairs or maintenance needed to pass an inspection.
  3. Upload your Safety Standards Certificate
    After you pass your vehicle inspection, upload a clear photo of the ‘Safety Standards Certificate’ to your Uber account.

Insurance in Ontario

Ontario has approved an insurance policy from Intact Insurance designed specifically for ridesharing. Drivers are still required to maintain a personal insurance policy.
