Taxi Services Review

Following ongoing concerns that the local taxi industry is not meeting the needs of the community, the City is conducting a Taxi Services Review.

Starting in 2018, meetings were held with local businesses agencies, business owners and taxi companies.  In addition, related research and a public survey followed.  A presentation outlining various considerations related to the local taxi industry was made to City Council in November 2019.

As a result, Council has directed staff to start bringing back recommendations related to following matters, through the Transportation Committee, starting in January 2020:

  • Metered fare system
  • Vehicle for Hire / Ride Sharing
  • Other matters related to the industry, i.e., licensing, application process, technology, smoking in cabs, cleanliness of cabs, and ride refusal
