City Council on May 3, 4 and 5, 2016, adopted the following:

 

1.  City Council endorse the goal of achieving an inclusive and accessible vehicle-for-hire industry that will ensure that all Toronto residents and visitors have equal access to Toronto's vehicle-for-hire industry.

b.  any person facilitating transportation that satisfies the definition of carpooling pursuant to the Public Vehicles Act will not be a PTC; and

 

c.  in this definition "person" includes multiple persons who, acting together, carry on the business of a PTC, despite the fact that no single one of those persons carries on the activity in its entirety, and such persons shall be subject to § 545-2A, and may be held jointly and severally responsible for each others' actions.

 

3.  Any PTC offering, operating, or facilitating transportation commencing within the City:

 

a.  requires a PTC licence; and

b.  may only permit a ride to be booked through a smartphone application.

b.  that the PTC will have the ability to meet minimum data security and data provisions to Municipal Licensing and Standards as per the business licence requirements;

 

c.  that the PTC has appropriate agreements, contracts and/or processes in place to screen the criminal and driving histories of drivers providing transportation to passengers through the PTC’s Platform, and to provide such information to Municipal Licensing and Standards per the licence requirements;

 

d.  that the PTC maintains and can produce, as and when required by Municipal Licensing and Standards or law enforcement, all records in accordance with the licence requirements;

 

e.  that the PTC maintains and will provide regular daily or weekly updates to the City the records of drivers that have contracted with it to provide services through the PTC’s Platform;

 

f.  the PTC’s registered business address in the Province of Ontario; and

5.  City Council require that all PTC licences under the Vehicle-for-Hire by-law be issued subject to a six-month probationary period. During the probationary period, the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards, may conduct random audits or investigations to evaluate compliance with the by-law and suspend or place conditions upon the licence, without a hearing, for up to 14 days at his or her discretion if he or she has reasonable grounds to conclude that the continued operation of the business poses an immediate danger to health or safety of any person or to property.

Decision Advice and Other Information

The Licensing and Standards Committee met on April 14 and 15, 2016 to consider this item.

Origin

(March 31, 2016) Report from the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards

Summary

This report outlines a series of recommendations that, taken together, form a new framework for equitable regulation within the vehicle-for-hire industry. This framework is founded on the City’s regulatory purpose and interests of public safety and consumer protection, and accelerates the City’s commitment to ensuring the availability of inclusive accessible service within the vehicle-for-hire market.

 

This framework will respond to the public’s request for choice in regulated transportation options and provide an opportunity for the City to shift from prescriptive regulation to an approach based on established standards, accountability and monitored compliance through audit and enforcement. It is anticipated that this approach will enable operational flexibility and provide industry participants with an equal opportunity to provide quality service in a competitive market, while maintaining the City’s municipal regulatory purpose.

 

There are currently more than 45,000 trips per day taken by the public in unregulated vehicles-for-hire. Appropriate regulation governing this industry is a critical public safety matter. The development of this new regulatory framework ensures that these vehicle-for-hire participants are regulated, as are taxicabs and limousines, balancing the City regulatory interests with existing industry practices.

 

This report proposes a reset of the City's approach to regulation, and in some cases adjusts the City's role as it relates to the direct delivery of service. The proposed framework aims to address public safety and consumer protection, while also providing an opportunity to: develop efficiencies, allow competition, reduce regulatory burden for taxicabs and limousines, and implement regulations for a new 'Private Transportation Company' (PTC) licence class, which would permit and regulate private vehicles to offer transportation services, such that UberX provides.

 

Current vehicle-for-hire regulations have a lengthy, complex, and complicated history. For decades, the City of Toronto and jurisdictions around the world have heavily regulated their taxicab industries and, to a lesser extent, their limousine industries. The Toronto taxicab industry, in particular, has been the subject of repeated reviews which have steadily increased the nature and extent of the regulatory involvement in the industry. One of the key contributors to this has been the restricted issuance of licences which has constrained the number of taxicabs permitted to operate, and has also prevented other transportation service providers from entering the market.

 

Despite numerous attempts by the City to address issues within the taxicab industry, including two comprehensive reforms in the past 18 years, many within the industry continue to identify issues of poor working conditions and the improper conduct of industry participants/middlemen. These previous regulatory reviews have been focused on regulations meant to address consumer complaints, unsafe driving practices, and fairness among industry participants.

 

One of the most reformative reviews of the Toronto taxi industry was the 1998 review, which created the Ambassador Taxicab licence, and made numerous amendments to the existing licence class (Standard Taxicabs) to move the industry toward an “owner-operator” model.  This change was meant to enhance the quality of taxicab services by reducing the number of "middlemen" and limiting absentee licence owners. 

 

Despite this reform and those resulting from the 2014 Taxicab Review, many taxicab drivers continue to indicate that they are not being fairly treated and further indicate that much of the profits within the industry are being shared amongst middlemen and owners who may not be directly involved in the business. This has a direct negative impact on the City’s objectives of promoting consumer protection and public safety to the extent that the existing financial structure undermines or does not incentivize behaviours that are consistent with the City’s goals.

 

Staff maintain the belief that owner operated vehicles-for-hire provide the most cost efficient operating model and in many cases, provide a better quality service. In this respect, a recommendation is being made to issue new incremental accessible taxicab licences (TTL) to taxicab drivers on the waiting list.

 

However, given the changed context of the vehicle-for-hire market and in the interests of providing an equitable level of regulation, staff are recommending the elimination of the owner-operator oriented regulations as they apply to taxicabs.

 

With the availability of more opportunities for vehicle-for-hire drivers and with increased competition amongst vehicle-for-hire industries, a mandated "owner-operated" taxicab industry model no longer achieves the intended regulatory efforts to protect consumers and ensure public safety. These changes will also recognize the manner in which many within the taxicab industry are already organized operationally and will provide additional flexibility to the industry.

 

 This report proposes a new Vehicle-for-Hire Bylaw that:

 

-  regulates taxicabs, limousines, and companies such as Uber in an equitable manner;

-  reduces regulatory burden, while maintaining requirements for public safety and consumer protection;

-  builds on existing plans to secure accessible vehicle-for-hire services; and

-  provides opportunities for competition and innovation.

Overview of Vehicle-for-Hire Bylaw

The recommendations in this Report are aimed at creating a regulatory regime for taxicabs, limousines, and Private Transportation Companies (PTC) based on measures appropriate to balance consumer protection, public safety, and the economic wellbeing of the City. Key regulations are as follows:

 

1. Fares

Staff recommend that taxicabs continue to charge the current City regulated rate for all trips taken through street-hail or at cabstands. If a taxicab is booked through a Taxicab Broker, the rate may be discounted by the Taxicab Broker, subject to specific conditions designed to ensure transparency in the pricing. Limousine Brokers and PTCs will be permitted to set rates to be charged which may vary in different time periods, but passengers must accept the rate before the vehicle is dispatched.

 

2. Accessibility

Staff recommend a multi-pronged approach to ensure accessible vehicle-for-hire service. This approach proposes:

-  increasing the number of accessible taxicabs to 25% of the taxicab fleet by issuing additional TTLs to drivers on the waiting list;

-  waiving licence application and licence renewal fees for accessible taxicabs;

-  waiving accessible training fees for licensed taxicab drivers and owners;

-  requiring PTCs to deliver equitable accessible service; and

-  reporting back on a strategy to collect money from all non-accessible vehicles-for-hire to incentivize the delivery of accessible taxicab service through mechanisms that offset the increased operating costs of accessible taxicabs.

 

3. Number of Vehicles-for-Hire

Staff recommend continuing to limit the number of taxicab licences issued. It is recommended that the City not impose a limit on the number of limousine licences or number of vehicles affiliated with a PTC.

 

4. Taxicab Licensing

Staff recommend reducing the regulatory burden on taxicabs by reducing the number of taxicab owner licence categories and eliminating certain current licensing requirements to increase flexibility. This approach proposes:

-  removing mandatory minimum owner-operator hours for all taxicab owners;

-  removing requirements for mandatory conversion of an Ambassador taxicab and Standard taxicab to a Toronto Taxicab upon sale of taxicab;

-  permitting Ambassador taxicabs to be converted to Standard taxicabs upon renewal or sale; and

-  removing taxicab ownership restrictions that prevent incorporation and ownership of multiple taxicabs.

 

At the same time, staff recommend the creation of a new licensing category “Taxicab Operator”, which will recognize and regulate the operations of lessees and fleets operating taxicabs to regulate and hold accountable the actual “operator” of the taxicab for such things as vehicle maintenance and records management of taxicabs under their control.  

 

5. Vehicles

Staff recommend permitting any four-door vehicle less than 7 (seven) model years old for use as a taxicab, limousine, or PTC vehicle.

 

Taxicabs will continue to be subject to semi-annual, City-run mechanical inspections, and will be required to meet all existing vehicle quality standards. Limousines would no longer attend the City for semi-annual inspections, but would instead be required to submit an annual Safety Standards Certificate issued by a Ministry of Transportation licensed garage upon renewal. A PTC will be responsible for ensuring that all vehicles affiliated with it submit an annual Safety Standards Certificate issued by a Ministry of Transportation licensed garage upon application, and annually thereafter. 

 

Recommendations seek to authorize enforcement staff to issue a notice and/or direct any vehicle-for-hire to undergo a mechanical safety inspection at their discretion.

 

Staff are requesting authority to undertake a review of options and the feasibility of transitioning taxicabs to an alternative inspection process, such as that being recommended for limousines and PTC vehicles.

 

Due to the independent and anonymous nature of street-hail and cabstand taxicab service, taxicabs continue to be the only vehicle-for-hire that is required to have a taximeter, a roof light, a camera, an emergency light, markings that identify it as a taxicab, and a Taxicab Bill of Rights. Staff are proposing to establish a Taxicab Vehicle Quality Standard, which will provide clarity and transparency to service providers, and address the public's interest in vehicle conditions.

 

6. Drivers

Staff recommend harmonizing taxicab and limousine driver licences to create one “Vehicle-for-Hire Driver's Licence” that will permit drivers to operate taxicabs or limousines.

 

All persons wishing to operate as taxicab, limousine or PTC drivers would be required to meet the same criminal background and driver screening requirements, as established by the City.

 

The City would continue to collect and screen the applicants for taxicab and limousine drivers. A PTC would assume responsibility to collect and screen the applicants for PTC drivers, and be required to submit or make available on an ongoing basis, electronic records of permitted drivers, where the records of the PTC will be subject to audit from the City.

 

Staff recommend reducing the barrier to entry to become a licenced taxicab or limousine driver by eliminating the mandatory City-run training for all taxicab and limousine drivers and owners, with the exception of drivers of accessible for-hire vehicles.

 

7. Insurance

All taxicab and limousine vehicles are currently required to carry a minimum of $2 million of collision and passenger hazard insurance. PTC vehicles will also be required to carry a minimum of $2 million of collision and passenger hazard insurance. In addition, PTCs will be required to carry $5 million of commercial general liability insurance.

 

Overarching Purpose of Recommended Changes

This report outlines the recommended changes to the existing legislation governing the taxicab and limousine industries, and recommends the development of regulation to govern new entrants being named Private Transportation Companies.

 

This review has provided the opportunity to refocus and reset the City’s approach to regulating the taxicab and limousine industries and to propose the regulation of PTCs, aiming to establish an equitable and appropriate level of regulation that balances the interests of diverse stakeholders. The proposed changes will remove constraints that have prevented the expansion of vehicle-for-hire services in the past, foster competitiveness, allow taxicabs and limousines to develop efficiencies, and reduce regulatory burdens.
