Title
AMENDED THIRD ALTERNATE Amending Sections 12.915(8)(a) and (b) and Section 11.06(3)(r) of the Madison General Ordinances to prohibit taxicabs waiting for passengers on State Street and permits them to provide service on State Street between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m.
Body
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This ordinance repeals language allowing taxicabs to enter State Street and wait in designated loading areas. It permits taxicabs to provide service to prospective fares on State Street without restrictions other than the traffic code between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m. This ordinance will also clarify that hotel shuttle vehicles are not public passenger vehicles. The ordinance expands the one block limitation on taxis travelling on State Street during the hours of 4:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., to allow them to leave State Street on the next block that is in the direction of their destination (including a destination on State Street). The ordinance has a delayed effective date for FTA concurrence.
