On May 23-24, the New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission (TLC) will hold public hearings on the taximeter rate of fare and For-Hire Vehicle (FHV) driver pay. According to the TLC, “To conduct this review, TLC will engage in a robust public process that includes public hearings, as well as driver and industry surveys and outreach. TLC encourages drivers, industry members, and members of the public to participate and provide feedback.”

The virtual meeting will be viewable at: www.nyc.gov/tlc.

“COVID-19 and high rates of inflation have dramatically affected the economic landscape of the for-hire transportation industry,” the TLC stated. “The taximeter rate of fare has not been adjusted in 10 years, and for-hire vehicle driver pay has not been thoroughly evaluated since before the economic disruption of the pandemic. TLC’s review of fares and driver pay will ensure that the for-hire industry remains viable for drivers, businesses, and passengers as New York City’s economy continues to recover.”
