Medallion Sales Cancelled

To All Interested Parties:

The Philadelphia Parking Authority’s Board Order No. 17-003 (“Authority Order”), notice published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin at 47 Pa.B. 2301 (April 15, 2017), directed the Taxicab and Limousine Division (“TLD”) to administer the sales of 61 Philadelphia taxicab medallions, each of which are designated as wheelchair accessible vehicle (“WAV”) taxicab medallions.  That notice included the date, time and location of the bid openings for each of those WAV medallions.  To date, the Authority has sold 32 of those WAV medallions.  The remaining WAV medallions were listed to be sold as follows:
