We license and regulate the vehicle-for-hire industry, including taxis, limousines and ridesharing companies (also known as Transportation Network Companies). That means making sure drivers have the right security checks, qualifications and insurance, and their vehicles have undergone mechanical inspections, so you can have a safe ride.
The vehicle-for-hire industry is regulated through the Livery Transport Bylaw. Tax payers do not pay to regulate the vehicle-for-hire industry. The fees from licensing companies and drivers go back into the industry to keep it safe, viable and efficient.
