Notice To All Interested Parties:

On July 9, 2016, notice was published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin (46 Pa.B. 3776) of the Philadelphia Parking Authority’s Board Order No. 16-001 (“Authority Order”) directing the Taxicab and Limousine Division (“TLD”) to administer the sale of 41 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 WAV medallions. To date, the Authority has sold five (5) medallions. The remaining WAV medallions were listed to be sold as follows:
