DC Taxicab Commission Statement

Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Response to taxicab protest

Contact: Neville Waters (202) 645-6020

The DC Taxicab Commission (DCTC) is currently working on updated regulations that will ensure a fair, balanced, competitive, and safe system for passengers and drivers. The District’s City Council is also considering legislation regarding the role of private vehicles in public transportation. In the meantime, DCTC will continue to enforce against illegal street hails and violations of the reciprocity agreement between Virginia and Maryland. This includes private vehicles that are cited and fined as they have chosen not to register with DCTC; and without proper registration they are operating illegally.
