Description

Please join award-winning international transportation expert Jeffrey Tumlin and other guests for a discussion on how ride-hailing policy may impact transportation and carbon emissions in BC communities.   

 As the Province considers how to legislate ride-hailing in BC, find out how it is impacting carbon emissions elsewhere in the world.

 At this webinar, you will learn:

1. What ride-hailing is; how it is evolving; how it is transforming car, transit and bike use around the world; and what is next;

2. What this could mean for carbon emissions and climate action planning in your community;

3. What voluntary and regulatory approaches are being used to reduce carbon impacts in this sector; and

4. How a good provincial policy framework can set the stage for ride-hailing to be a feature of climate leadership as opposed to worsening climate impacts.
