Mayor’s claim that majority of residents don’t want ride-hailing is simply laughable
As Uber and Lyft rolled out in parts of Metro Vancouver Friday morning, Surrey Now-Leader readers were sharing their views on the ridesharing services.
Surrey Mayor Doug McCallum previously said, “A large majority of our residents do not support ride-hailing in Surrey, basically because it is not a level playing field between ride-hailing and taxis.”
He said that following a mayor’s council meeting that saw Metro Vancouver mayors voting to fast track regional licensing in early 2020. McCallum was the only mayor opposed.
Even as Uber began operating in parts of Surrey Friday morning, McCallum still said that the Passenger Transportation Board’s approval “does not change my position on this issue.”
The City of Surrey ended up sending a letter to Uber to cease operations in the city by 9 p.m. Friday, but the company said it “respectfully” declined.
