It's been on the table for 2 years, but now confirmation has been made that Uber will begin shortly in Townsville.
After a mix of discussion and debate it has been finalized that the plans are concrete.
Already, more than 2000 locals have put their hands up to become Uber drivers.
Those interested in becoming Uber drivers will have their criminal histories checked and will have to secure a Driver Authority.
It's believed the service which will compete directly with Townsville Taxi drivers will commence on March 16.
