Taxicab Tariff Rate Increases

Notice to All Interested Parties:

As previously advised, on August 23, 2017, the Philadelphia Parking Authority Board amended Order No. 17-005 by extending the effective date of the taxicab tariff’s mileage and waiting time increment increase to $0.25 until December 1, 2017 pursuant to a petition filed with the Taxicab and Limousine Division (TLD) by taxicab driver Ronald Blount.

All owners of taxicabs under the jurisdiction of the Authority shall make arrangements with the meter technology vendor of each taxicab prior to December 1, 2017 for adjustments to the meter concerning this rate change.  Immediately upon compliance with the rate adjustment on the meter, the taxicab shall be presented to the TLD for a meter inspection and seal prior to returning to service.

The TLD will not be publishing an amended schedule.  The medallion owner is responsible for ensuring that it adheres to the aforementioned deadline.

Thank you,
