By Council Members Diaz, Constantinides, Rivera, Yeger, Brannan, Powers, Ampry-Samuel, Ayala, Levin and Miller

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to the waiver of licensing fees for accessible taxi-cabs and for-hire vehicles

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1.  Subdivision b of section 19-504 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as amended by local law number 57 for the year 1991, is amended to read as follows:

 b.   The license fee for each taxi-cab and coach shall be five hundred fifty dollars annually. The license fee for each wheelchair accessible van and each for-hire vehicle shall be two hundred seventy-five dollars annually. If a license is granted for a period other than one year, the fee shall be prorated accordingly. There shall be an additional fee of twenty-five dollars for late filing of a wheelchair accessible van or for-hire vehicle license renewal application where such filing is permitted by the commission. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the license fee authorized by this subdivision shall be waived for any for-hire vehicle license that shall be used with a wheelchair accessible vehicle, as defined in subdivision w of section 19-502, or a taxi-cab license used with an accessible vehicle, as defined in section 53-03 of title 35 of the rules of the city of New York, as of the date such license fee is due and payable.

§ 2. This local law takes effect immediately.
