BULLETIN #017

CITY OF CALGARY ORGANIZATIONAL REALIGNMENT 2022 AUGUST 02

INDUSTRY STAKEHOLDERS,

This communication is to advise that The City of Calgary is making changes to its internal structure to build a stronger, more modern organization, and bring together similar functions to improve collaboration and streamline service delivery. There will be no impacts to customers as a result of the Organization Realignment, however livery participants will notice a new departmental name and title changes, summarized below.

Effective 2022 August 01 :

  • Livery Transport Services will be called Vehicle-for-Hire Public Safety and will operate under the Public Vehicle Standards unit of Emergency Management & Community Safety (formerly Calgary Community Standards)
  • Livery vehicle enforcement, licensing, and administration will be overseen by the Chief, Public Vehicle Standards (new position) and the Deputy Chief, Vehicle-for. Hire Public Safety (formerly Chief Livery Inspector).

, Livery industry training and analytics will be part of the Optimization Services unit of Emergency Management & Community Safety.

The organization realignment will not change any of the day-to-day services currently being provided by Livery Transport Services and has no impact on the Livery Transport Bylaw 20M2021, which remains in effect. Additionally, the office location and phone number remain the same.

As Livery Transport Services transitions to Vehicle-for-Hire Public Safety, all staff remain committed to delivering quality services to industry stakeholders, while offering citizens safe, reliable transportation options. Please reach out to Itsengagement@calgary.ca with any questions regarding the realignment.

Sincerely,

Abdul Rafih

Chief Livery Inspector
