Uber and Lyft could be operating on B.C. roads as early as September 16th, according to the provincial government, which announced today its regulations on licensing and insurance for ride hailing will be in effect as of that date.

Ride hailing companies would first need to apply for permission to operate through the Passenger Transportation Board with applications being accepted beginning September 3rd.

The PTB, an independent board, is also responsible for setting guidelines around supply, boundaries and fares.
