Information for Vehicle for Hire Licence Holders
Taxi drivers and dispatchers with a current valid licence will transition to the new bylaw and the licence will expire as it would without having to pay new fees at this time.
All expired drivers' licences that had their expiry dates extended should have been renewed by 4:30pm MDT, Thursday July 14, 2016.
Vehicles for Hire in Edmonton
Taxi, limousines and shuttles in Edmonton are governed by Vehicle for Hire Bylaw 17400, which was approved by City Council on January 27, 2016 and came into effect on March 1, 2016.
Under the new bylaw, technology-based companies such as mobile app ride sharing services, can operate legally in Edmonton under a new class called Private Transportation Providers (PTPs).
The regulatory framework in the new bylaw helps to answer citizen and business demand for more choice in the vehicle for hire industry, while continuing to firmly uphold the standards set for public safety to protect passengers and drivers.
