Posted on February 20, 2013

SAN FRANCISCO --  The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) has recently taken a number of actions to protect consumers from illegally operating passenger carriers.

During the fourth quarter of 2012, the CPUC took the following enforcement actions against limousine, bus, and shuttle companies for violations of the Public Utilities Code and CPUC rules and regulations:

ADMINISTRATIVE ACTIONS AND ENFORCEMENT CITATIONS HERE

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) participated in a multi-agency strike force operation at San Diego State University (SDSU) on passenger carriers (limousines, shuttles, tour buses) during the fourth quarter of 2012.

The operation was conducted to ensure that companies are properly licensed with the CPUC. CPUC staff participated in a surprise Maximum Enforcement Detail Operations, hosted by the SDSU Police Department enforcement officers. Other law enforcement officers that participated in the operation included the California Highway Patrol (CHP), San Diego Police Department (SDPD), Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC), and several other local enforcement agencies.

Two party buses were stopped. One bus was issued a CPUC misdemeanor warning for operating with an expired permit and the bus was impounded by the CHP. The second bus was cited by the CPUC with a misdemeanor warning for operating with a suspended permit for worker's compensation violation.
