According to the company’s UberSELECT requirements, vehicles must be 2007 or newer, must be a higher end sedan or luxury SUV, have leather seats, plus functioning A/C and heating.


Ramit Kar, General Manager for Uber Western Canada, said in a statement “I’m very pleased today to announce the official opening of a new Uber office to better serve Calgarians looking to earn a flexible income as drivers-partners. Furthermore, we are happy to start offering UberSELECT services to Calgarians looking for a luxury ride at an affordable price.”

At a press conference, Kar said Calgary now has over 70,000 riders using Uber’s app and nearing 1,500 drivers, reports the Calgary Herald.

Uber relaunched in Calgary back in December, while news of UberSELECT in Calgary was announced back in February.
