High Volume For-Hire Services (HVFHS)

Rule status: Proposed

Agency: TLC

Comment by date: April 30, 2021

Rule Full Text

The Taxi and Limousine Commission (“TLC”, “Commission”) is proposing rules that would amend provisions throughout Title 35 of the Rules of the City of New York to classify the high-volume for-hire service (“HVFHS”) license as a type of base license to be regulated separately from black car base licenses. This will eliminate the need for HVFHSs to hold any separate and additional base licenses, such as a black car base license, if they already hold a high-volume for-hire service license.

Attendees who need reasonable accommodation for a disablity such as a sign language translation should contact the agency by calling 1 (212) 676-1135 or emailing by April 30, 2021
