On December 13, 2012, the Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) passed rules to continue the Taxi Passenger Enhancement Program (TPEP) following the expiration of the current contracts with CMT and VeriFone.
Originally, the TPEP contracts with CMT and VeriFone were set to expire on February 15, 2013. These contracts have now been extended to April 22, 2013 at 11:59PM.
On April 23, 2013, TLC will publish through Industry Notice and on its website a list of TLC Authorized TPEP Providers. Sign up for our Listserv notification service to be notified when the first TPEP Provider has been authorized.
By June 22, 2013, every medallion owner MUST enter into a contract with a TLC Authorized TPEP Provider and have TPEP equipment installed that complies with Chapter 75 of the TLC rules.
Between April 23, 2013 and June 21, 2013, medallion owners can either:
1. Continue to obtain TPEP services from CMT or VeriFone pursuant to their existing contracts or termination assistance services provided for in their contract; OR
2. Enter into a new contract with a TLC Authorized TPEP Provider.
