Welcome

On November 27, 2018 and February 21, 2019 the Legislative Assembly authorized the Committee to examine, inquire into and make recommendations on regulations regarding transportation network services in British Columbia.

The Committee released its report on March 26, 2019, making 11 recommendations on four areas of regulation for Transportation Network Services in BC: criteria to consider when establishing boundaries; appropriate polices to balance the supply of service with consumer demand; criteria for determining price and fare regimes; and appropriate classes of drivers' licences.

The Committee recommended moving forward without boundaries or caps on fleet size, implementing a minimum per-trip price that exceeds the cost of public transit, and requiring drivers to hold a Class 5 licence.

The Committee heard 15 presentations and received 47 submissions from expert witnesses which, along with supporting documentation prepared by the Parliamentary Committees Office, will be available soon.

The Select Standing Committee on Crown Corporations is one of ten permanent all-party committees of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia.
