It could be a long night at Centennial Hall Wednesday.
Residents are invited to a public participation meeting on proposed changes to London’s vehicle for hire by-law.
Uber, Uber drivers and the London Taxi Association are all scheduled to speak.
Back in July, city staff put forward a number of proposed changes to London’s vehicle for hire by-law that would see Uber treated the same as taxi’s and limos.
However, Council decided to cut recommendations that would have banned surge pricing and required in-car cameras.
London Taxi Association spokesperson Roger Caranci tells AM980 they want everyone to play by the same rules.
“We hope that Council does not water down the bylaws in place right now, rules and regulations that the taxi industry has to follow and we hope that any other entity coming forward has to follow and play by those same rules that we do that I think are to the benefit of the consumer,” he said.
The Association announced in July that it would not be paying the yearly licensing fee for 2017 in protest of Uber operating in the city.
Wednesday’s meeting will be held at 4p.m. at Centennial Hall.
