Int 0559-2014 *Ydanis A. Rodriguez Agreements between livery base stations.IntroductionCurrent Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) rules allow a livery base to dispatch livery vehicle affiliated with another base when the passenger is told that this is the case at the time the passenger requests the ride. Until recently, the industry practice, though not required by current TLC rules, has been to dispatch vehicles affiliated with another base only if there is an agreement between the bases. The bill would require an agreement between bases before a livery base may dispatch a livery vehicle affiliated with another base.Hearing Held by Committee  Action details Not available

Int 0615-2015 *Ydanis A. Rodriguez Allowing the taxi and limousine commission to consider improved trouble lights for use in licensed vehicles.IntroductionAll taxis and for-hire vehicles in New York City are equipped with “trouble lights” that allow drivers to notify the public and law enforcement if they are under assault or are otherwise endangered while operating their vehicle. Currently, the Administrative Code limits the type of light that may be used to so-called “lollipop” lights. The legislation would remove the requirement that only “lollipop” lights be used as trouble lights, enabling the use of other technologies, such as LED lights, or more cost efficient options.Hearing Held by Committee  Action details Not available
