Subject Matter of the Lobbying Activity
Specific Topics of Lobbying Communications Intended Outcomes Associated Subject Matters
Educating policy-makers and regulators on the social and economic benefits of ridesharing in British Columbia and the Lyft business model, including how drivers' earnings are calculated. This is important since we are by law required to submit driver earnings to the Passenger Transportation Board (PTB) as a condition of our provincial licence. We want to ensure that if PTB (PTB) data is shared in aggregation to the Ministry of Labour that it is properly understood, and that the rideshare business model and how it differs to the taxi model is also well understood. The goal is to inform any decisions that are being made around earnings regulation or the Employment Standards Act.
