In Re: Authorization of Wheelchair Accessible Medallions
On March 7, 2015, notice was published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin of the Philadelphia Parking Authority’s Board Order 15-003 directing the Taxicab & Limousine Division (“TLD”) to administer the sale of 61 Philadelphia taxicab medallions, each of which are designated as wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV) taxicab medallions. This notice included the date, time and location of the bid openings for each of these medallions. The sales began on May 6, 2015 and resulted in the sale of 50 WAV medallions (WP-1601 through WP-1650).
Pursuant to the Board Order under Paragraph No. 10, the TLD Director exercised his discretion and requested the Authority Board to remove the remaining 11 WAV medallions from the schedule to permit TLD staff and the regulated industry to focus on getting all of the WAV medallions already sold into service more rapidly.
Therefore, please refer to Authority Board Order No. 15-006 (Download) cancelling the sales of the remaining 11 WAV medallions (WP-1651 through WP-1661).
