Victoria Pedicab licences scaled back

After negative reaction from the industry, council scaled back its proposal to increase the number of pedicab licences available from 28 to 75.

Coun. Lisa Helps amended her original motion, setting a new cap at 30 licences.

Under the new vehicle-for-hire bylaw, the city will now hold a request-for-proposals to allocate pedicab licences, as they become available. Council deemed this process preferable to a lottery system to award licences.
