Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule


On December 13, 2012, the Taxi and Limousine Commission (“TLC”) approved rules, which established a formal procedure by which a vendor can become an Authorized T-PEP Provider, set forth technical requirements for TPEP systems supplied by Authorized Providers, and established the services to be provided by such Providers. These proposed rules seek to amend TLC’s TPEP rules in order to address technical considerations that were identified by industry groups and TLC staff. Additionally, these proposed rules establish, and require drivers to use, a new “On-Duty Unavailable Code” to be used when a taxicab driver accepts an E-Hail or a dispatch from an accessible dispatch program and is en route to pick up the passenger.


The Commission’s authority for this rules change is found in section 2303 of the New York City Charter and section 19-503 of the New York City Administrative Code.




Public Hearing

The Taxi and Limousine Commission is considering changing its rules. The proposed changes amend the rules governing the Medallion Taxicab Technology Enhancement Project (TPEP) to modify the rules governing procedures for unavailable on-duty taxicabs and authorization of TPEP Service Providers, and to incorporate technical considerations that were identified by industry groups and TLC staff.
