Issues Update: Ridesharing in BC–March 2018

Thank you for writing to me about ridesharing. As you may know, on February 15, an all-party legislative committee provided extensive recommendations to our government about how to implement ridesharing with the values that all British Columbians prioritize: safety for passengers, fairness for drivers, and a chance for BC firms to compete.

You can read the report here: https://www.leg.bc.ca/content/CommitteeDocuments/41st-parliament/2nd-session/CrownCorporations/Report/SSC-CC_41-2_Report-2018-02-15_Web.pdf

These recommendations, and the recommendations from a study of the taxi industry will inform our government’s legislation to introduce ridesharing in BC. Thank you for your support as we work to ensure ridesharing is introduced in BC in a way that improves transportation for everyone.
