Replacement of 2009 Model Year Taxicabs

Reminder Notice to All Owners of 2009 Taxicabs:

On November 4, 2016, Governor Wolf signed Act 164 of 2016 into law, which among other things, changed the Taxicab and Limousine Division’s (TLD) inspection process.  Under Act 164, taxicabs are no longer subject to biannual inspections.  Therefore, the last day on which a 2009 model year vehicle may be operated in taxicab service is December 31, 2017.

This date is fast approaching and this reminder is intended to help prevent scheduling conflicts.  Please do not wait until the last minute to replace your vehicle.  Please contact the TLD Enforcement Department at (215) 683-9447 to schedule a change-of-vehicle.

Thank you.

Deputy Director of the TLD
