Applications for Taxi Modernization

Applications and decisions for Taxi Modernization Supply Increases are listed below. This page consolidates application notices and decisions that were published in the Weekly Bulletin.

About Taxi Modernization Applications To Increase Supply

Until October 19, 2018, taxi licensees had an opportunity to make an application to:

  • expand their fleet by up to 15%, and
  • convert approved taxis to single-shift paired vehicles.

On January 23, 2019, the Board posted an overview of outcomes from the taxi modernization application process. For additional information about these applications and other short-term actions the PT Board is taking for taxi modernization, see our taxi modernization webpage.
