newswatch12's cameron derby is in ashland. we go to hiim live now. cameron you mentioned some residents feel like this will play to the tourism community there. what are residents saying about that? the residents i spoke to feel like this is going to be a huge benefit for the tourism community. the tourism here is such a big part of what the city of ashland is. but even with that large tourism group that comes in every year, ashland still has that small town feel. especially downtown ashland. there have been some concerns that uber could take that feel away. but the residents i spoke to feel like uber is going to make it way easier for tourists to get around the area. especially those who get out of shows late. [e17]uber in ashland-sot "right now it's still very much in the way that ashland is a small town and most of the restaraunts and businesses close around 10:30, 11, midnight. often times, people want to stay out later than that. especially if they are getting out of a show at 11pm, and they want go and drink with their friends and talk about it." now in the next 15 minutes i am going to be giving you updates on how to get registered to drive. because it is not just registering on the app in ashland. also, how many people have signed up to drive so far. reporting
