The New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC or NYC TLC) is an agency of the government of New York City[1] that regulates medallion (yellow) taxicabs, livery cabs, "black cars", commuter vans, paratransit vehicles (ambulettes), and some luxury limousines.[2]

The commission consists of nine members appointed by the Mayor for seven-year terms with the advice and consent of the City Council, with one member designated by the Mayor to act as the chairman and chief executive officer.[3] TLC inspectors are New York City special patrolmen. It was established in 1971 as the successor to the New York City Hack Bureau operated under the aegis of the New York City Police Department. Its regulations are compiled in title 35 of the New York City Rules.

In April 2015, the TLC posted a notice in the City Record proposing the "Licensing of For-Hire Vehicle Dispatch Applications", requiring mobile app operators to apply for approval of certain changes to any app used to arrange vehicle rides for hire, widely considered to be targeted at ridesharing company Uber, with a public hearing to be held on May 28.[4][5]
