The City of Delta has put a simple, clear, and transparent process in place to ensure ride-hailing companies will be able to operate as soon as they are ready and the Province has allowed them to do so.
Ride-hailing companies wanting to operate in Delta will be required to pay a base annual business licence fee of $110 plus $25 per car with a cap per company of $1,500. This is consistent with the business licence fees paid by taxis that operate in Delta.
“We have established a simple and reasonable business licensing system for ride-hailing to ensure that we are treating ride-hailin companies and taxis fairly while allowing our residents to access improved transportation services.
We look forward to ride-hailing companies operating in Delta as soon as the Province allows them to.” - Mayor George V. Harvie
Delta’s business license fees for ride-hailing are the lowest announced fees in the region. This interim approach will allow for ride-hailing companies to operate in the community.— Office of Mayor George V. Harvie (@MayorofDelta) December 6, 2019
Delta’s business licence fees for ride-hailing are the lowest announced fees in the region. This interim approach will allow for ride-hailing companies to operate in the community while Delta continues working with its regional counterparts to establish an inter-municipal licensing system. At that point, the Delta‑specific fees would no longer be charged.
