Commission Announces Shutdown of DC Express Cab Company for a Variety of Taxicab Violations

Friday, July 27, 2012
The violations include failure to maintain a DC administrative office and not maintaining the minimum required number of vehicles.

The DC Taxicab Commission today ordered the DC Express Cab Company to stop operating and begin removal of its 17 vehicles from city streets.  The action was taken as a result of numerous violations of Taxicab rules and regulations.

The Commission found that the Company could not provide a current occupancy permit, failed to maintain an administrative office in the District of Columbia with a telephone number and address listed in the name of the company and was unable to demonstrate that it was operating as a legal business entity.

Additionally, the Commission found that the Company failed to maintain at least twenty (20) insured vehicles within the fleet, failed to file a notice of transfer and falsified its records concerning ownership and business address.
