While Canberra is known for its over-concentration of politicians and uni students, it also holds the title of being the first city to regulate ride sharing in Australia. Canberrites have been enjoying riding with Uber (legally) for over a year now, and now you can drive with Uber too, even if you don't have a car. Uber car rental services abound, covering your insurance and giving you access to an Uber-ready vehicle for a weekly fee.
