Widely known and deeply respected in the taxi and for-hire vehicle industries, Jed Appelbaum of Brooklyn sadly passed away on June 13. Mr. Appelbaum, who was born April 4, 1953, was 69 years old.
Mr. Appelbaum joined the New York Taxi & Limousine Commission (TLC) in 1977 as Assistant Commissioner of Safety and Emissions. He was responsible for operations at the TLC’s main inspection facility in Woodside, Queens, where he supervised a staff of 60 people and managed the inspection process of over 60,000 taxicabs annually, as well as the inspection of all licensed meter shops.
Upon leaving that position, Mr. Appelbaum served as Vice President of Operations for the Northeast Region at Clear Channel Taxi Media. Then, in 2006, he became Vice President of Operations at CMT Management, where he managed the day-to-day operations at the company’s Long Island City installation facility, as well as technology materials and fleet operations.
