Your Safety as a New York Limousine Passenger:

All limousines and for-hire sedans operating out of New York City are subject to minimum insurance requirements and must operate under a valid permit, signified by a current Taxi and Limousine Service decal on the front right of the windshield. All chauffeurs must carry a current chauffeur's license and for-hire operator's permit. All vehicles are inspected three times per year. For general information, please also see our list of federally regulated minimum requirements for limousine operators to understand national laws regarding your safety as a limousine passenger.

Your Legal Rights as a New York Limousine Passenger:

Before booking with a particular New York City limousine company it is a good idea to check that the limousine or sedan is fully permitted (see above) and that registration and inspection stickets appear valid. It is also a good idea to be clear about all charges before beginning limousine service. These may include tolls, airport fees, regulatory fees, travel time, holiday surcharges, fuel surcharges and courtesy cell-phone usage charges, which should be stated clearly up front and on your receipt. By clarifying these charges in the beginning, you can avoid companies or drivers who may charge fees not originally included in your service.
