Safety Camera Installation Extension

Notice to All Interested Parties:

Please see the attached order issued by the Philadelphia Parking Authority Board at its regular meeting on February 24, 2015 at Order No. 15-001 concerning an extension of taxicab safety camera installations. This extension is granted to provide additional time for suppliers and taxicab owners to coordinate the purchase and installation of compliant camera systems. – Download Order 15-001

As previously advised by email on February 5, 2015, upon request of a taxicab owner, the TLD may schedule safety camera inspections to confirm that a system acquired by the owner is in compliance with the regulations. All owners are urged to use the additional time provided by this order to contact approved vendors to secure compliant safety camera systems in anticipation of the finalized inspection schedule. The list of approved taxicab safety camera vendors is posted on the Authority’s Taxicab and Limousine Division webpage “Resources & Forms”.
