Replacement of 2009 Model Year Taxicabs – REMINDER

Notice to All Owners of 2009 Taxicabs:

REMINDER: The last day on which a 2009 model year may be operated in taxicab service is December 31, 2017.  This date is fast approaching.  Take steps now to replace your retiring vehicles and avoid scheduling conflicts.


As you recall, taxicabs are no longer subject to biannual inspections and the law mandates that taxicabs shall be no more than eight (8) years old or have been driven for no more than 350,000 miles.  The Taxicab and Limousine Division (“TLD”) has sent out multiple reminder email messages concerning the removal of 2009 taxicabs.  This reminder notice is being sent to you again to help prevent scheduling conflicts.  Contact the TLD’s Enforcement Department at (215) 683-9447 to schedule a change-of-vehicle appointment.

Thank you.
