In December 2011, the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) approved the creation of the Accessible Dispatch program to provide on-demand taxi dispatch service to customers in wheelchairs. The program is financed by the Taxi Accessibility Fee, which is a required fee to be paid by all medallion owners annually pursuant to TLC Rule §58-16(f).
The Taxi Accessibility Fee for 2014-2015 is $260 per medallion you own or manage.
This payment is mandatory. Failure to pay the taxi accessibility fee by May 19, 2014 will result in a summons and a $1,000 fine as per the cited rule.
