In the face of ris­ing gas prices and the need for al­ter­na­tive trans­porta­tion op­tions, espe­cially in Sur­rey and South of the Fraser, the Sur­rey Board of Trade wanted to know the thoughts of their mem­ber­ship again on whether or not Sur­rey needed rideshar­ing, also re­ferred to as ride-hail­ing.

“There is tremen­dous sup­port for rideshar­ing with over 90% of re­spon­dents say­ing they wanted rideshar­ing in Sur­rey,” said Anita Hu­ber­man, Sur­rey Board of Trade CEO.

The Bri­tish Columbia Gov­ern­ment has made plans to im­ple­ment ride-hail­ing ser­vices this Fall. Ride-hail­ing ser­vices in­clude ser­vices such as Lyft and Uber where driv­ers use their own ve­hi­cle to pick up and drop off pas­sen­gers through the use of an app or web­site.

“Let’s fi­nally have some ac­tion on rideshar­ing in Bri­tish Columbia. Sur­rey needs it,” said Hu­ber­man.
