Council direction

Council’s Calgary Transportation Plan outlines a need to offer accessible transportation options. Improvements to our service will ensure fairness and transparency promoting mobility and complementing transportation options by assessing developing trends and engaging stakeholders. We are also looking into recommendations for a fee structure review for transparency, to create alignment between Vehicles-for-Hire and Taxis.
