Coronavirus (COVID-19) Alert

Vaccine Mandate

Taxi and Limousine Commission-licensed drivers and operators, like all private sector workers who interact with the public or perform in-person work, were required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 by December 27, 2021.

Drivers and operators can comply by keeping their proof of vaccination with them while driving. Neither drivers nor passengers are required to show proof of vaccination to each other.

Learn more about the mandate.

Face Coverings

Face coverings are still required by both drivers and passengers during a ride. Drivers are allowed to refuse service to a passenger who refuses to wear one.
