As of January 1, 2020, Toronto rideshare and taxi and limo drivers are now subject to new regulations that introduce mandatory driver training and impose a 3 year minimum driving experience threshold before they can hit the streets.

Other public safety and consumer protection regulations introduced by the enhanced Vehicle-for-Hire Bylaw include:

- Drivers are now required to attach “Watch for Bike” notices to their vehicles

- All handheld devices must be securely attached to vehicle interiors

- If cameras are being used to record passengers, drivers will have to display notices to their passengers

- Drivers not providing wheelchair accessible service will now be subject to a regulatory charge. The funds of the new Accessibility Fund Program will be disbursed to wheelchair-accessible drivers to help offset the higher cost of providing wheelchair accessible service.
