Adopted rule summary:
In 2014, the TLC approved rules that require For-Hire-Vehicle (FHV) bases to submit trip records to the TLC. This new data promotes fundamental agency priorities, including:
- Keeping passengers safe by informing the agency of the identity of the driver of a dispatched for-hire vehicle (we need the name of the driver and the corresponding license number to enforce safety and consumer protection regulations;
- Preventing driver fatigue in support of Vision Zero street safety program; and
- Ensuring that those drivers dispatched by High Volume For-Hire Bases receive the minimum pay provided for in TLC’s rules.
The rules would strengthen the TLC’s ability to pursue these goals by prohibiting the following improper practices relating to trip record submissions:
-A Base failing to submit trip records in a timely fashion,
-A Base failing to submit complete trip records, and
-A Base submitting faulty or inaccurate trip data. Further, these rules would establish new penalties for the violations listed above. Finally, the rules would increase certain data submission requirements to allow the TLC to enforce timeliness and other service standards of trips taken in Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles.
