Each taxicab in the District is required to have a working digital meter provided by a Digital Taxicab Solution (DTS) or Option for Payment Technology (OPT) Provider. These providers supply the meter, roof light, payment processing, and optional backseat console for all taxicabs in the District. DFHV advises drivers to contact providers for more details and to carefully evaluate the features and pricing terms to select the DTS/OPT Provider that best fits their business needs.
Drivers who choose to switch their DTS/OPT Provider must do so before September 1, 2021. DFHV limits DTS contracts to a maximum of one year, September 1 - August 31, to protect drivers and expand their choices.
