MIAMI — The Miami Dade Passenger Transportation Regulatory Division (PTRD) and the industry’s Limousine Advisory Group met recently to discuss the how the recession affects the Miami chauffeured transportation business.
As a result of this meeting, the PTRD agreed to extend the time period of the payment to renew for-hire permits by three months and also extend the time frame for vehicle inspections by an additional three months.
Carla Boroday, president of the Florida Limousine Association and a member of the Limousine Advisory Group, said, “This will help operators during a tough period. We are especially happy with the great working relationship the PTRD has with our industry recognizing the need to make this change to help sustain the health of the industry.”
