The Greater Vancouver Board of Trade is urging the Provincial Government to make changes to passenger transportation regulations, to allow ride-sharing like Uber.
Business leaders also want the province to enhance the competitiveness of the taxi industry.
The business association says 80 per cent of members who responded to a survey want the government to introduce regulations that would allow ride-sharing services, like Uber and Lyft, to operate in B.C.
The Greater Vancouver Board of Trade also wants the province to update taxi regulations to enable the industry to compete against ride-sharing apps.

The province’s stakeholder summary on “ride-sourcing” in B.C. shows ride-sharing could result in a “reduction in the value of existing taxi shares.”
It says stakeholders also “cautioned against creating a two-tier framework” with different rules for taxis and Uber.
There is no date the province has given on when a decision will be made.
