Replacement of 2011 Model Year Taxicabs
REMINDER TO MEDALLION OWNERS OF 2011 MODEL YEAR TAXICABS:
**LAST WEEK TO OPERATE 2011 MODEL YEAR TAXICABS**
In compliance with the age and mileage limitations for taxicabs outlined in the law and Authority regulations, the last day on which a 2011 model year vehicle may be operated in taxicab service is December 31, 2019. This date is fast approaching. See 53 Pa.C.S. § 5714 and Act 164 of 2016 – 53 Pa.C.S. § 57B02 (c)(6); see also 52 Pa. Code § 1017.4.
As you will recall, taxicabs are no longer subject to biannual inspections and the law mandates that taxicabs shall be no more than eight (8) years old or have been driven no more than 350,000 miles. This reminder notice is being sent to you to help prevent scheduling conflicts. Please contact the TLD’s Enforcement Department at (215) 683-9447 to schedule a change-of-vehicle appointment. On December 30th & 31st, change of vehicle appointments will be only scheduled prior to 11:00 a.m. Please also keep in mind that there is a two week wait to have a meter installed in a new taxicab vehicle by Curb (formally Verifone) at 7th and Packer Avenues.
OUT OF SERVICE DESIGNATION: ACT 164 of 2016, 53 Pa.C.S. § 57B02 (c)(14) requires five (5) days notice to the CERTIFICATE owner prior to suspending or otherwise disabling a taxicab meter. THIS IS YOUR NOTICE.
