Canadian ride sharing company Uride is all set to launch in Vernon at 3 p.m. today, Jan. 27.

The company’s Vernon launch comes after success in Kelowna, Kamloops, Prince George and Nanaimo.

“The people of Vernon have been asking for a safe, reliable and affordable transportation option for a long, long time,” said Uride Western Canadian operations manager Ravi Dhami last week. “With the massive success we’ve had in two bordering cities, Kelowna and Kamloops, we couldn’t be more excited to get our operations in Vernon up and running.”

Uride is starting things off in Vernon with some promotions. People who use Uride between Jan. 27 and Feb. 5 will receive $5 off each ride when they use the promotion code VERNON5. On top of the discounted rides, Uride is also giving away $250 in cash to one customer who uses the promotion code.

“We have an incredible team of drivers who are fully committed to preventing impaired driving and providing the people of Vernon with a safe, reliable and affordable transportation option,” Dhami said Friday.

If you need a ride, you can download Uride on the App store or Google Play store.
