DOT Intercity Bus Permits
Proposed Rules: Closed to Comments
Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule
The rules related to the Intercity Bus Permit System went into effect on July 25, 2013. The rules require intercity bus operators to apply for a permit from DOT in order to be assigned on-street bus stops in the City. The rules require applicants to pay a fee for each permit issued. The rules also require permit holders to mark their buses in accordance with specific guidelines so that customers and enforcement officers can readily identify them. Due to concerns raised by some bus operators, this rule will cap the permit fee to a maximum of $275 for each bus that is operated during the permit term and expand the methods by which intercity bus permit system permit holders may mark their buses for identification.
