It’s called the Green Light Hub and it is offering a wide range of assistance for those who want to become drivers.“They’re going to see full-time staff that are willing to help them out and get through the entire process, with things like, how would I go about getting my Class 4 license, where do I go get a background check with the city done, etc., someone would basically take them through the entire process,” Kar added.Despite the improvements, Kar said the company is continuing to focus on safety.“We do things like track telematics, and what that is, we actually will see how a drivers braking is going,” he explained. “If they are braking too much or accelerating too much, things like that, we kind of give coaching to drivers.”Uber Select will begin in Calgary Monday afternoon.
