Nine organizations in British Columbia are joining forces to advocate for ride-hailing services in the province as soon as possible.
Ridesharing Now B.C. has been formed by groups including the Vancouver Board of Trade, B.C. Business Council, Canadian National Institute for the Blind and the San Francisco-based on-demand transportation company Lyft.
A news release from the coalition says it has launched a letter-writing campaign to B.C. politicians calling for a competitive ride-hailing industry "that can deliver much-needed choice to B.C. passengers.''
Supporters are directed to the website, where they can sign and email a letter to their representative in the legislature calling for speedy introduction of ride-hailing services.
