For Immediate Release

Information about Street Hail Livery (SHL) Permits

The New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) has begun the second issuance of SHL Permits. We would like to remind current and future permit holders of the following:

  1. Convertible SHL permits
  2. Up to 6,000 SHL Permits are now available for purchase: 1,200 SHL Permits are immediately restricted to use with a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (“WAV”) and the remaining 4,800 are Convertible SHL Permits that could at a later date be restricted to use with a WAV. As outlined below, the TLC anticipates that in total 1,500 Convertible SHL Permits will be randomly selected to be restricted to use with a WAV:

    • First Renewal, three years after purchase: 500 SHL Permits
    • Second Renewal, six years after purchase: 500 SHL Permits
    • Third Renewal, nine years after purchase: 500 SHL Permits

    Permit holders will be given reasonable notice prior to conversion and are always free to voluntarily use a WAV with their SHL Permit.

  3. Certification Letter from Licensing required for LPEP & Meter
  4. TLC’s Licensing Division will provide SHL Permit holders who have: 1) affiliated their SHL Permit to a SHL Base and 2) affiliated their SHL Permit to a TLC-licensed vehicle, with a Certification Letter. TLC also maintains a list of SHL permit holders who have received a Certification Letter on the TLC’s Current Licensees page. LPEP providers and licensed meter shops will not install any equipment in a hacked-up TLC-licensed vehicle unless the following requirements are met:

    • The Permit-holder provides a copy of the Certification Letter showing a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) that matches the vehicle receiving the LPEP and meter
    • OR
    • The Certification appears on TLC’s website in the list of SHL Permits on the Current Licensees page; and

    • The VIN on the list of SHL Permits matches the vehicle receiving the LPEP and meter; and
    • The list of SHL Permits contains the Certification date which indicates that all required affiliations have been completed with TLC.

  5. Measured Mile Run for Taximeters
  6. Before a vehicle can be brought to the TLC’s Woodside inspection facility for initial Hack-up/Re-Hack inspection, a TLC-licensed meter shop must perform a measured mile run on the meter to make sure that it is functioning accurately. The TLC would like to remind SHL Permit-holders that a measured mile run must also be performed by a licensed meter shop annually. Failure to comply (TLC Rule 82-40(e)) may result in a $150.00 fine.
