Taxi Alliance commends Council on decision to regulate Uber, looks forward to reports on enforcement results

TORONTO, July 9, 2015 /CNW/ - Toronto City Council's unanimous vote to review the existing regulatory by-laws and to recommend changes which will ensure that the taxi industry and Uber are on a level playing field is a step in the right direction, says Sam Moini, spokesperson for the Toronto Taxi Alliance.

"We are very pleased that City Council has overwhelmingly recognized public safety is paramount, and they were clear in their intent to enforce Ontario's Highway Traffic Act and city by-laws to protect the riding public from uninsured and illegal taxis and limos.

"Now, we hope to see evidence of the fact that through the combined efforts of the City and Toronto Police Services, that these laws are being enforced. We would like to see Licensing and Standards issue a weekly report on incidents and charges laid."
