The Passenger Transportation Board is moving
February 7, 2024
The Passenger Transportation Board (Board) has been advised by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure that, as of April 1, 2024, the Board will move to the Ministry of Attorney General. The move is consistent with the B.C. government’s aim to move all administrative tribunals to the Ministry of Attorney General.
Impacts of move
The Board’s role and mandate will not be changing. However, this move means that the Board Chair will report to the Attorney General rather than the Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, and Board staff will be affiliated with the Ministry of Attorney General.
While the Board looks forward to the opportunity to work more closely with other boards and administrative tribunals, there could be an impact, at least in the short-term, on Board operations as staff support transition to a new ministry. The Board appreciates your patience as we go through this transition.
The Board intends to continue working on priority projects affecting the passenger transportation industry, such as:
- Rates Policy project, including a review of taxi rates structures and custom taxi cost index, to help support the taxi sector as it emerges from the effects of the pandemic and undergoes market restructuring.
- Taxi Camera project, including a review of current camera technology and its applicability to the passenger transportation industry.
