New York City TLC Increases Black Car MPG to 25

Posted on April 21, 2008
As expected, the New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission has altered regulations for the "black car" segment of registered transportation companies. Vehicles added to fleets after Jan. 1, 2009 must get at least 25 mpg, and after Jan. 1, 2010, must get 30 mpg. While most LCT readers are members of the "luxury limousine" category and aren't directly impacted by this decision, selling used Town Cars to "black car" operators will go away after Jan. 1, since Town Cars get 12-15 mpg. "Luxury limousine" operators are upset about this drastic change in fleet practices, and are worried their category will join black cars (and taxis) in the new regulations.
