PRLA Waiting for Response from Parking Authority

Posted on June 6, 2007 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Regional Limousine Association (PRLA) is hopeful that it can work out its dispute with the Philadelphia Parking Authority (PPA), but it will continue pursuing legislative remedies in the state capitol if necessary, said Philip Jagiela, president of the PRLA. The state PUC regulates the industry, but the PPA has implemented a series of overlapping regulations that have caused financial burdens and administrative hassles for operators; some of the issues concern licensing of livery vehicles in the city, driver background checks, and inspection of vehicles.

The city of Philadelphia has been experiencing a funding gap and has been looking at various industries, including limousines, as a source of revenue. The PRLA is expecting a response to a detailed letter sent to the PPA by the end of this week. The association has cultivated several influential supporters in the state legislature who are encouraging a settlement of the dispute.
