Halifax Regional Council asked staff to undertake a review of the taxi and limousine vehicle for hire industry in the municipality. The consultants report will be ready for Council’s consideration this fall. The Transportation Standing Committee also made a motion for a report on improving gender diversity. Both the review and the motion will be part of a report to Council.
Drivers in the industry need to make strong points on public safety and the need for regulation and reasons why Uber would have a devastating impact on an industry that NEES regulation.
