The B.C. government is imposing new rules on limousines and party buses in the province, including the requirement that operators have a safety monitor on board whenever there are minors travelling.

B.C. Transportation Minister Claire Trevena made the announcement in Victoria Wednesday, ahead of the industry's busy high school graduation season.

The new rules will apply to all limo and party bus bookings made after April 1.
