Surrey - Where Transportation Happens
Surrey Board of Trade Members Want Ridesharing in Surrey
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.
