“Steinbach has seen its population increase by 43 per cent over the last 10 years, and that growth trend is what potentially attracts new services such as rideshare,” Morris said.

The company is asking interested drivers in the region to begin the application process through the TappCar website.

As for TappCar expanding to more cities across Manitoba, that is still on the table as well, according to Morris.

“We would love to go into Brandon. We would like them to get the bylaws in place for ride-sharing services to be offered.”
