New taxi logos coming! The TLC’s Board of Commissioners has approved a fare increase that will require a new package of taxi stickers, seen in this picture. Smart Design, a design firm, produced these new logo designs for the TLC.
Taxis must display these new stickers for their first TLC inspection on or after September 30, 2012, though they may be displayed as early as September 4, 2012. Taxi drivers and owners will be able to purchase the stickers from authorized printers. A list of these is available on the TLC’s web site at http://www.nyc.gov/html/tlc/downloads/pdf/tlc_authorized_printers.pdf. Check with your favorite meter shop to see when they will have the new stickers ready to print.
An Industry Notice with details of the new fare implementation is available at http://www.nyc.gov/html/tlc/html/news/industry.shtml.
