For-Hire Vehicle

For-Hire Vehicles provide pre-arranged transportation throughout New York City. There are four classes of FHV service in New York City: Community Cars (aka Liveries), Black Cars, Luxury Limousines, and High Volume For-Hire Services. For-hire trips must be arranged through a TLC-licensed FHV Base and performed by TLC-licensed drivers in TLC-licensed vehicles.

FHV Bases accept trip requests from passengers, dispatch drivers, are responsible for collecting and paying taxes, and pay into the NY Livery Fund and the Black Car Assistance Corporation, which provide certain driver benefits. High Volume For-Hire Services are companies which, through their subsidiary bases, dispatch at least 10,000 trips per day. These companies are subjected to increased data reporting and driver pay requirements.
