Members of the taxi industry and the general public are invited to attend one of two public information sessions to review the City's report framework outlining opportunities for improvement to Toronto’s taxicab industry.

The City's Municipal Licensing and Standards division has undertaken a comprehensive review of the taxi industry, involving 27 consultations over a two-year period, and extensive research to address issues within the industry.
Information sessions will be held:

The Framework will be used to guide further consultations with the industry in July 2013. The creation of a final report is scheduled for September 2013, including final recommendations for the taxicab industry.
