Deadline to activate additional taxis extended

Deadline to activate additional taxis extended

May 24, 2023

The Passenger Transportation Board (Board) recognizes the significant impact COVID-19 has had on the passenger transportation industry. That is why since June 2020, the Board has granted multiple BC-wide extensions for the activation of:

  • Taxi modernization vehicles; and 

  • Additional vehicles approved by the Board after March 2020

The Board is aware that licensees continue to experience struggles and challenges in obtaining replacements parts and vehicles, many of which are accessible vehicles, as a result of the supply chain issues caused by the pandemic.

In light of this information, the Board is issuing an extension of the activation deadline to December 31, 2023. Licensees will have until this date to activate additional vehicles, or they may no longer be valid.
