In partnership with the New York City Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications (DOITT), TLC has published millions of trip records from both yellow medallion taxis and green Street Hail Livery (SHLs). Publicizing trip record data through an open platform permits instant access to records which previously were available only through a formal process (FOIL request.) The TLC does not collect any information regarding its passengers.
New trip record data will continue to be uploaded, so be sure to check back periodically for the latest available data sets.
You can request TLC data that are not currently on the Open Data website by filing a FOIL request on Request Data. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org
