Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, Claire Trevena made it clear today on Connect FM’s 'Sver Wala Show' that municipalities do not have the power to block ride sharing companies from operating.
She said that a city’s role is limited to issuing business licenses to these companies.
After a long wait of over two years, the Passenger Transportation Board (PTB) on Thursday, finally granted ride sharing giants Uber and Lyft licenses to operate in Metro Vancouver and Whistler.
The Mayor’s Council is working on an interim regional license which will save ride sharing companies the trouble of securing business licenses from every municipality in which they have license from PTB to operate.
Surrey’s Mayor Doug McCallum has made it clear on numerous occasions that he will not grant business license to any ride sharing company.
