Fw: Notice for Street Hail Livery Permit Holders

New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission

June 26, 2013

To All Interested Parties:

Industry Notice #13-24
june 26, 2013

For Immediate Release

Important Notice for Street Hail Livery Permit Holders
Regarding the Schedule for Implementation of the LPEP Requirement

TLC Rules §82-41 and §82-42 require every Street Hail Livery vehicle to be equipped with an LPEP system, which includes a credit card reader, a GPS unit, and an information monitor.

As of today, no entity has been licensed by the TLC to be an LPEP Provider.  Accordingly, the TLC will allow Street Hail Livery permit holders to delay compliance with the LPEP requirement of these Rules, and to operate their Street Hail  Livery vehicles in the interim without an LPEP system.

Once we have issued sufficient LPEP Licenses, such that there is a fair and competitive market for LPEP systems, we will issue an updated Industry Notice alerting Street Hail Livery permit holders and allowing them 90 days from that date to install an LPEP system.  At that time, only TLC-licensed LPEP systems will be permitted.
NOTE:  Street Hail Livery permit holders will still be responsible for complying with all relevant laws, rules and regulations. This means that Street Hail Livery permit holders must install a meter, a roof light, and all other required equipment. It also means that permit holders must collect and remit the $0.50 MTA tax where applicable and ensure that all Street Hail Livery pick-ups occur only where permitted.

Aviso para la industria # 13-24                                                   26 de Junio, 2013
  Para publicación inmediata

Un aviso importante con respeto al horario
de implementación del requerido sistema de LPEP para los
Taxis de los Condados

Las reglas §82-41 y §82-42 de la TLC requieren que todos los Taxis de los Condados tengan un sistema de LPEP que incluye un lector para tarjetas de crédito, un GPS, y una pantalla de información para el chofer.

Desde hoy, ninguna compañía ha sido licenciada por la TLC para proveer un sistema de LPEP.  Por lo tanto, la TLC permitirá a los dueños de permisos para un Taxi de los Condados retrasar su conformidad con este requerimiento y operar su Taxi sin un sistema de LPEP.
Cuando hemos emitido suficientes licencias de LPEP, tal que hay un mercado justo y competitivo para los sistemas, mandaremos un nuevo Aviso para la Industria que notificara que un dueño de permiso tendrá 90 días de aquel Aviso para instalar un sistema de LPEP.  En aquel momento, solo se permitirán los sistemas de LPEP licenciados por la TLC.

UNA NOTA: Dueños de permisos para un Taxi de los Condados todavía serán responsables para la conformidad de todas las leyes y reglas relevantes. Esto significa que un dueño de permiso tiene que instalar un taxímetro, una luz de techo, y todos los demás equipos requerido. También significa que los dueños de permisos tienen que colectar y remitir el impuesto de $0.50 de la MTA donde aplicable y asegurarse que todos los viajes empiecen en lugares donde un Taxi de los Condados puede operar.

* New York City Council members Julissa Ferreras and Maria Del Carmen Arroyo are pushing for legislation aimed at improving the quality and transparency of the city's Office of Chief Medical Examiner. The office has been under scrutiny after an incident in which the body of an Irish man, Kevin Bell, 26, was picked up by the medical examiner's office van and placed next to a bag of recyclables. One of the proposed bills would amend the New York City charter and require an analysis of errors committed by the office, with the final report to be submitted to the mayor and City Council. The other bill would require guidelines and protocols to be posted online for the general public. At an oversight hearing on Monday, Arroyo, the chair of the Council Health Committee, raised the possibility of improving transparency voluntarily instead of being forced to through legislation. "Give me a reason not to pursue the legislation and help me inform the public better about the work that you do and that when you identify a problem that you're on top of it, that you're taking care of it," said Arroyo.
