Electronic Record System
All Paratransit vehicles must use an electronic record system that collects and stores the trip record data electronically. Most of the required data fields must be collected in the vehicle. The trip record data must be transmitted to the TLC on a monthly basis.
Any method or equipment that enables a Paratransit base (TLC licensee) to comply with the requirements is acceptable. Paratransit bases can contract with any vendor to assist with the collection and transmission of this data; however the TLC does not endorse, sponsor, or recommend any vendor, service provider or service. The selection of a vendor or service is at the licensee’s discretion. The licensee is responsible for ensuring the vendor provides to the TLC the information required by TLC Rules in the format specified by the TLC. 

The below PDF document, titled “Information Fact Sheet” provides detailed information on data collection and transmission.
