Green Cab

Street-hail Liveries, also known as green cabs, are For-Hire Vehicles that are permitted to accept street-hails. In exchange, Street-Hail Liveries may not operate in the Hail Exclusionary Zone, south of West 110th St and East 96th St.

The Street-Hail Livery permit is a license that is attached to a For-Hire Vehicle license. Like all For-Hire Vehicles, green taxis affiliate to and accept dispatches from FHV Bases. In addition, green taxis can accept dispatches from licensed E-Hail companies, and must be outfitted with the same equipment as yellow taxis.
