Taxi and Limousine Commission’s (TLC) E-Hail Pilot Program Can Go Forward

  • October 29, 2013

The New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, First Department, has unanimously affirmed the State Supreme Court’s ruling that the Taxi and Limousine Commission’s (TLC) E-Hail Pilot program can go forward. The Appellate Division found that the Pilot Program, which tests out the use of E-Hail Apps in the NYC’s yellow taxicabs, is a valid exercise of the TLC’s authority and complies with all applicable laws. Owners and operators of the City’s taxicab fleets, represented by Richard D. Emery, Elizabeth S. Saylor, and Jennifer Keighley of ECBAWM, intervened in the case on behalf of the TLC.
