Medallion Auction

The New York State Supreme Court issued a temporary restraining order (TRO) prohibiting the sale of additional medallions at this time. This order is in response to three lawsuits filed by the yellow taxi industry. The judge has stated that he will attempt to resolve all pending motions quickly and bring the issue to a final resolution.

Please check the TLC web site periodically at www.nyc.gov/tlc for updates. Thank you.



Taxi Medallion Increase Draft Environmental Impact Statement is Available

The New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC), as lead agency, has prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for a proposed issuance of up to 2,000 new yellow taxi medallions. All of these new yellow taxi medallion licenses are restricted to vehicles that are accessible to individuals who use wheelchairs.  On March 9, 2012, the TLC published a Draft Scope of Work for the Draft Environmental Impact Statement and an Environmental Assessment Statement (EAS) and issued a Positive Declaration.  A public scoping meeting on the Draft Scope of Work was held on April 19, 2012 at TLC’s Commission Meeting Room. In accordance with the requirements of the City Environmental Quality Review (CEQR) and the State Environmental Review Act (SEQRA), the TLC has prepared a DEIS that identifies the potential environmental or economic impacts of increasing the number of new yellow taxi medallions.

Please be advised that the public hearing regarding the Draft Environmental Impact Statement that was scheduled for Tuesday, June 12, 2012 has been postponed until further notice.

Medallion Sale Environmental Review Final Scope of Work -5/22/2012-

This winter the New York State Legislature passed legislation authorizing the City of New York to sell up to 2,000 new yellow taxi medallions for use exclusively on vehicles that are accessible to individuals who use wheelchairs. The Taxi and Limousine Commission is currently undertaking a review process called City Environmental Quality Review (CEQR) to identify what impacts a medallion sale would likely have on the environment or economy.
In accordance with CEQR, TLC is initiating a process to define the scope of the Draft EIS (DEIS).  As an initial step in that process, TLC prepared a Draft Scope of Work for the DEIS and made it available for review and comment to the public.  On April 19, 2012, a public meeting forum was held for public comments on the Draft Scope of Work and written comments were accepted until the close of business on April 30, 2012.  The Final Scope of Work was prepared by TLC after consideration of public comments.
