NFL DRAFT – Taxicabs and TNCs
TO ALL INTERESTED PARTIES:
The Philadelphia Office of Special Events has advised the Taxicab and Limousine Division of the following arrangements for taxicab and TNC drivers servicing the NFL Draft event on the Parkway as follows:
Taxicab and Transportation Network Company (“TNC”) operators are directed to stage and queue on the north side of Spring Garden Street between 22nd Street and 17th Street in the westbound parking lane. The Philadelphia Police Department will regulate the flow of taxicab and TNC traffic westbound onto Pennsylvania Avenue as conditions permit. Once fares are picked up, vehicles may then continue westbound on Pennsylvania Avenue out of the area or turn around at 25th Street and exit the area eastbound via Spring Garden Street or Pennsylvania Avenue. Taxicab and TNC operators are directed to use the dedicated queue lane and not obstruct the lane. Philadelphia Police will enforce applicable laws and regulations relating to double parking, blocking of intersections and the unsafe operation of motor vehicles.
