In just over 24 hours, British Columbia will be receiving more news about bringing rideshare to the province.

The provincial government has announced that on Monday, November 19, they’ll be unveiling their “next step” to enable ridesharing in the form of the “passenger transportation amendment act.”

The announcement will be made by Claire Trevena, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, and will take place at the Parliament Buildings in Victoria at 1:45 pm.

In an interview with Daily Hive on Thursday, Premier John Horgan recognized the high demand for ride-hailing services in the province.

“I’m going as fast as I believe is appropriate for the protection of the travelling public,” he said.

Stay tuned for more on this announcement on Monday.
