Victoria’s Accio, a self-described “on-demand delivery service”, is set to deliver a rideshare service to Victoria in the next few months.

Mike Rowe, no stranger to international media attention, is the technology wizard behind the start-up.

Accio already claims to have made over 1,500 local deliveries of over 8,000 items.

But their next move, Accio Rides, will put them among the likes of Uber and Lyft, two companies that have been unable to make inroads in BC, due to regulatory and insurance restrictions.

Rowe says their service might open as early as May of this year.
