(a) Definition.

A taxicab is a vehicle properly licensed, inspected, and marked as such by an appropriate licensing authority of the State of New York. All such vehicles shall be subject to inspection by any airport law enforcement personnel, any Federal, State or local law enforcement officer, any airport official, and all agents appointed by the SRAA who display proper identification. Vehicles which fail inspections will be required to immediately leave airport premises.

(b) License to operate on airport premises.

(1) The SRAA may grant an exclusive or non-exclusive license(s) for walk-up customer taxicab services originating from the airport.

(2) Fees and charges for service originating from the airport will be determined by the executed airport ground transportation agreement between the SRAA and the taxicab services operator.

(3) Taxicabs which are not parties to an agreement with the SRAA shall be limited to drop-off fares and prearranged pick-up fares and are limited to waiting in designated areas only.

(c) Operations.

(1) Taxicabs operating under an agreement will use the designated areas for walk-up customers originating from the airport.

(2) Unless a taxicab is party to an airport taxicab agreement, taxicab pick-up services shall be prearranged.
(i) Prearranged taxicab services must display on the dashboard, so as to be visible from outside the taxicab, a waybill for each passenger for whom they are providing ground transportation services. This waybill must be made available for inspection on demand of any airport law enforcement personnel, any State or local law enforcement officer, all airport officials, and all agents appointed by the SRAA who display proper identification.

(ii) Taxicabs not a party to an agreement will use the designated areas to pickup customers originating from the airport.

(d) Taxicab dispatcher.

(1) As part of an exclusive agreement for walk-up customer services, the operator agrees to provide a dispatcher, who will be available to furnish service to airport passengers at the time of all scheduled flight arrivals (including changes in schedules) of the various airlines. If there is an exclusive operator, then that operator is the only entity permitted to maintain dispatcher services at the airport.

(2) The dispatcher will be responsible for the following:
(i) insuring the smooth and orderly loading and departure of the ground transportation vehicles;

(ii) maintaining order in the designated ground transportation staging areas and loading/unloading areas;
