District of Columbia Taxicab Commission adopts surety bond requirement


In addition to adopting a new taxicab number system, the District of Columbia Taxicab Commission has adopted a $50,000 surety bond requirement to benefit the District as a part of the licensing process for taxi businesses.

The bond is conditioned on the new laws adopted by the commission and requires the licensee to pay any fines or judgment for violating the regulations. Businesses must hold a surety bond that will last the entire business license plus one year past termination or non-renewal.
