Being responsible for the safety of passengers is the number one priority of the regulated taxi industry. We are regulated to ensure the safety of individuals, families and communities we serve. Vehicles meet all safety requirements; drivers are fully-trained and vetted. Our cars are equipped with state-of-the-art tracking systems and emergency features that protect passenger safety.


Regulated taxis carry full commercial carrier insurance. This is available only to licensed taxi operators and it protects everyone in the unlikely event of an accident including the driver and passengers as well as cyclists, pedestrians and other motorists.  Contingent insurance policies are not adequate protection for unregulated car-for-hire services. Taxicab operators use state-of-the-art secure payment systems to protect customers’ identity and card information.


The prices of a taxi ride are set by municipal and provincial governments to cover the costs of safety and security measures and, to ensure a fair wage for drivers. There are no ‘surge charges’ or other surprise costs; just the published metered fare. The taxicab industry in Canada, and in almost every other country in the world, is regulated to protect customers and people in the community.
