Suggested improvements included allowing companies to provide discounted taxi rides through apps, as well as increasing the number of taxis and information to the passenger transportation board. Furthermore, streamlined governance regulations, taxis with disabled access and entry pricing rules are important.

Numerous new taxi licence applications have been made – approx 300 in Lower Mainland and 200 outside.
