British Columbians will be able to use ride-hailing services but probably not until the fall of 2019. The ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure introduced legislation today, which will allow ride-hailing companies to enter the B.C. market next year.
The proposed changes include amendments to eight provincial statutes. According to the ministry’s news release, the province will have to develop a modern insurance product for ride hailing and make a process for doing background checks on drivers.
