Description:An Economic Impact Analysis of Toronto's Taxicab, Limousine and Private Transportation Companies.
The growth of private transportation companies, such as Lyft and Uber, has changed the vehicle for hire industry. The City of Toronto's Municipal Licensing and Standards is seeking a qualified, multi-disciplinary team of consultants to undertake an economic impact study of the 2016 changes to the vehicle for hire industry. The study should also include a supply and demand analysis that assesses and measures the impacts of the volume of PTC vehicles and drivers, as it relates to full-time work in the existing taxicab driver labour market.

The study is intended to improve the quality and scope of information used in the 2018/2019 review of Chapter 546, Licensing of Vehicles-for-Hire. The deliverables to be completed by the Vendor will provide qualitative and quantitative analysis that is presented in a form and at a level of detail that is easily understood by the public.

The ideal Vendor will consist of a team of qualified public policy consultants and economists with demonstrated experience delivering the required deliverables through an iterative process of research, economic modelling and forecasting, and stakeholder consultation
