On March 7th, 2017, the BC Provincial Government announced its support for introducing ride-hailing services including Uber and Lyft to British Columbia, which quickly drew criticism from the opposition. As the 2017 provincial election drew near, ride-hailing has become a controversial and challenging issue at both provincial and municipal levels.

With Micheal Van Hemman, Public Policy Manager at Uber, explored the following questions at a presentation during a CILTNA networking event:

  • Once introduced, how will Uber impact the lives of British Columbians? 
  • How, if at all, will it alter the local mobility economy? 
  • And what role should policymakers and regulators play?
