OTTAWA – A mobile app is Ottawa taxi drivers’ latest tool in the fight against Uber.
ECab is launching in the capital Thursday.
The app is similar to Uber, in that it lets you order a Blue Line or Capital Taxi cab, track it in real-time, and pay through your mobile device.
The app is already in use in seven countries and more than 30 cities.
The announcement comes as the taxi union waits to find out if a court will grant an injunction effectively shutting down Uber operations in Ottawa.
