Duties of Municipalities – Taxicabs

Municipalities must consult with their accessibility advisory committee, if one has been established, the public, and people with disabilities to determine the proportion of on-demand accessible taxicabs required in the community.

Municipalities that license taxicabs must ensure that owners and operators of taxicabs meet specific requirements, which include:

  • Not charging higher fares or additional fees to a person with a disability.

  • Placing vehicle registration and identification information on the rear bumper.

  • Making available vehicle registration and identification information to people with disabilities in an accessible format, for example, by keeping a large print and Braille copy of the information on hand.

Compliance dates range from July 1, 2011 to January 1, 2013. For more information on the specific requirements and dates for compliance, refer to the timelines tool for details.
