Meeting held electronically and open to public attendance in Council Chamber, City Hall
Inter-Municipal TNS (Ride Hailing) Business Licence Scheme Bylaw No. 8391, 2023
NOTICE OF BYLAW:
New Westminster City Council is considering expanding the Inter-Municipal Business Licence (IMBL) Scheme for Transportation Network Services (TNS aka “Ride Hailing”). This change will expand the IMBL TNS program to include the District of Hope, the District of Kent and the City of Mission.
The IMBL scheme streamlines the licensing process across Region 1 (Lower Mainland, Whistler) and allows ride-hailing companies to operate in all participating municipalities with a single business licence. To allow new entrants to the IMBL, each participating municipality must approve and enact a new IMBL Agreement and new Bylaws.
