COMPLETE VIDEO: 151st CityLaw Breakfast with TLC Commissioner Meera Joshi

Taxi and Limousine Commission Chair Meera Joshi

At this morning’s 151st CityLaw Breakfast, Taxi and Limousine Commission Chair Meera Joshi spoke on what’s changed and what hasn’t in for-hire vehicles. She acknowledged the biggest change in the industry to be size. The volume of taxis and for-hire vehicles has increased over the years, also increasing the number of daily trips taken in the City. Manhattan sees the largest number of trips.

Commissioner Joshi reflected on TLC’s increasing efforts for taxi safety, accessibility, and regulation of minimum driver earnings. Commissioner Joshi spoke about TLC’s collaboration with Families for Safe Streets, Transportation Alternatives, and the New York City Department of Transportation to produce a video that tell the stories of five families whose lives have been devastated by traffic crashes. The video is being used by driver training programs for taxi and for-hire vehicle drivers.

Commissioner Joshi also announces that the Taxi and Limousine Commission has recently authorized a pilot program that will allow the usage of apps by taxi medallions, which customers will use to hail cabs and receive upfront pricing for their rides.
