Statement of Basis and Purpose of Rule

 

 

On December 13, 2012, the TLC promulgated rules for the Authorization of TPEP Providers, which contained requirements that TPEP Providers must meet in order to be authorized to sell, lease, make available for use, install, service, and repair TPEP Systems in Taxicabs. These proposed rules establish the information security standards that said TPEP Systems must meet in order to be approved by the Commission for sale, lease, or use in Taxicabs.

 

The proposed rules require that the TPEP Data collected, transmitted, processed, maintained and stored by all TPEP Providers and their employees, agents and subcontractors must be safeguarded to provide:

 

  1. a secure medium for the TPEP Data and TPEP system components,
  1. protection of personal information of the TPEP Provider and subcontractor employees, and
  1. protection of personal information of members of the riding public who pay by credit, debit or prepaid card.

 

The proposed rules require that the TPEP Provider:

 

  • Establishes policies for information security, authentication, remote access, anti-virus security, application development security, digital media re-use and disposal, encryption, passwords, user responsibilities, and vulnerability management;

 

  • Complies with copyrights and develops appropriate controls and procedures to protect the Database Management Systems;

 

  • Limits access to TPEP Data, by providing safeguards such as firewalls and fraud prevention;

 

  • Maintains the confidentiality of personal information; and

 

  • Develops controls for network management and procedures for security incident management.

 

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.

 

 

Subject: 

The Taxi and Limousine Commission is considering changing its rules. The change would create a new chapter, Chapter 76, setting forth Information Security Standards for Authorized Taxicab Technology System (“TPEP”)1 Service Providers.

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.

 

 

 

Subject: 

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.
