“Failing to follow the organization’s new ride-sharing policy will result in the players, not the team, being held responsible for applicable expenses,” explained general manager, Pierre Dorion.
Meanwhile, team owner, Eugene Melnyk, offered some cost-saving tips to players, just days after a small group was unceremoniously filmed during an Uber trip.
Said Melnyk – “Don’t forget to UberPool if circumstances allow for it. Sharing rides not only saves the environment, but it also helps to improve a mutually beneficial bottom line and allows our beloved fans to engage with their favourite players. We are, and always will be Ottawa’s team.”
