Discounts Coming Soon
BC will soon allow ridesharing companies to operateand PG Taxihas applied for a license. A ridesharing license will allow us to:
Offer lower rates on trips booked through the app when in-app payment is used. Unfortunately, the Passenger Transportation Board will only allow us to accept in-app payment app trips ounce ridesharing starts. (stupid rule!)
Offer up front pricing on point “A” to “B” trips with no stops.
Other Companies will increase prices during periods of high demand, but PG Taxi will not “surge” their pricing.
Please check our Facebook page at PG Taxi for updates.
