D.C. Taxi Drivers Win Positive Change to 2006 Vehicle-Registration Policy

Effective Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2014, the District of Columbia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will implement a policy change, allowing a non-D.C. resident, operating a For Hire Vehicle (taxis), the ability to add his/her name to the current vehicle registration. This is a positive change from the 2006 rule, and will allow the non-D.C. resident to be listed as the primary owner of the vehicle registration, and the D.C.-based taxi company as the co-owner.

DC Taxi Commission Removes Company As Credit Card Provider

The D.C. Taxi Commission has ordered Gleike to cease operating as a Payment Service Provider (PSP). According to the DCTC, Gleike has failed to meet DCTC regulations following financial problems that have jeopardized the required payments to drivers and payment to the District of the 25-cent surcharge, and other issues. The Washington, D.C. Taxi Operators Association has repeatedly asked to have implementation of the regulations for the PSPs to be halted or re-evaluated. The problems involving Gleike are another example of the problems that have been created by the PSP program.
