White Plains Common Council Passes Overhaul of City's Taxi Ordinance


The White Plains Common Council approved an overhaul of the City's Taxi Ordinance at their April meeting yesterday evening. The changes had been sought by Mayor Roach. The ordinance authorized: five additional White Plains taxicab medallions to be assigned to accessible vehicles only, allows hailing within a defined "Hail Zone" located in the downtown area, replaces the Zone Map, with a requirement that all White Plains taxicabs utilize taximeters, requires all White Plains licensed taxicabs be painted a uniform color (white) and attach a White Plains taxicab medallion sticker to the vehicle, requires that all White Plains licensed taxicab drivers submit to annual drug testing, requires that cars be taken out of service when they reach 400,000 miles, simplifies the rate structure and provides a modest rate increase for all White Plains licensed taxicabs and requires all owners and drivers of taxicabs maintain vehicles in a clean and safe condition.

These changes are intended to enhance the customer experience.
