Who's interested in possible runs into Canada and back? Will Uber/Lyft pay extra for this? Will these be unicorns or cow pies?

Should UP.Net create another sub forum for the northern Ants just across the border? It's very likely we will start seeing them as far south as Smokey Point and Mt Vernon.

B.C. government says ride-hailing services can operate starting Sept. 16

Welcome to B.C., Uber and Lyft.

The ride-hailing companies could be operating on B.C. roads as early as Sept. 16, as the provincial government announced Monday its regulations on licensing and insurance for ride-hailing will be in effect as of that date.

However, ride-hailing companies would first need to apply for permission to operate through the Passenger Transportation Board. Applications will be accepted beginning Sept. 3.

The PTB, an independent board, is also responsible for setting guidelines around supply, boundaries and fares.

"Our plan has made it possible for ride-hailing companies to apply to enter the market this fall, with vehicles on the road later this year, while ensuring the safety of passengers and promoting accessibility options in the industry," said Transportation Minister Claire Trevena in a statement.

"British Columbians have been asking and waiting for these services after more than five years of delay by the former government. We took action to allow for the services people want and we're delivering on that promise."
