January 9, 2020 - The Dept. of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA), Corporations, Securities & Commercial Licensing Bureau (CSCL) issued a Cease and Desist Order against 906 Taxi LLC in Calumet – effective January 8, 2020 – for continuing to operate as a taxicab carrier after failing to complete its registration application with LARA, as required under Michigan’s Limousine, Taxicab, and Transportation Network Company Act.
To date, the company failed to submit the required certificate of liability insurance listing LARA as a certificate holder to CSCL, despite CSCL’s repeated requests for it. In addition, the company continues to advertise its taxicab carrier services when it is not registered in Michigan as a taxicab carrier. A referral is also being made to the appropriate criminal law enforcement agency.
The Limousine, Taxicab, and Transportation Network Company Act (2016 PA 345), which became effective March 21, 2017, moved the regulation of taxicab carriers from local to state jurisdiction, and moved the regulation of limousine carriers (eight or fewer passengers) from the Michigan Department of Transportation to LARA. Michigan joined more than three dozen states that have similar laws in place. Information regarding how to obtain a taxicab carrier, limousine carrier, or transportation network company registration may be found at www.mi.gov/tnc or by calling CSCL’s Licensing Division at (517) 241-9221.
