NY Summit June 27: ‘Disrupted by Technology & Politics! The Future of the Taxi Medallion System & For-Hire Ground Transportation Industry’
Join UTRC for its second summit on this topic, focusing on facts and opinions from a wide variety of stakeholders, policymakers and researchers on the current state of the NYC taxicab medallion industry, including ridership, medallion values and marketplace trends.
Panelists and participants will share observations, opinions and proposed solutions to help level the playing field, and to promote equity, accessibility and sustainability for all. Necessary legal, rulemaking and policy changes will be discussed, including caps or growth limitations on For-Hire Vehicles, the possibility of a taxicab fare increase and flexible taxis fares, enforcement and implementation of the new upstate Transportation Network Company (TNC) law, and the future of business at NYC and New Jersey area airports.
The impact of the new TNC law, expected airport fees and changes, and the policy reasons for the regulatory framework that defines taxicabs, liveries, black cars and limousines, commuter vans, paratransit service, shared rides, and smartphone apps (e-hails) will be addressed.
