Toronto’s New Taxi And Uber Regulations
IMAGE

On May 3, Toronto City Council voted 27-15 in favour of new regulations that will legalize UberX. Highlights of these new regulatory changes include:

-Allowing Taxis to adopt “surge-pricing” when rides are booked through a smartphone app
-Maintaining the requirement that taxis have cameras, but not private transport companies (PTCs) like Uber
-Undoing 2014 reforms that would have phased out the ownership of “standard” plates as a commodity

A brief overview of the new regulations can be found at the following link:
