Municipal Regulation of Transportation

/ 0 Comments /

Municipalities from time to time try to exert control over transportation operations conducted within or through their boundaries.  Unfortunately, they can only regulate taxi’s and limousines.  Buses are regulated by State and Federal agencies who issue approval for bus routes or charter operations.  Municipalities can regulate the location of bus stops only, and can regulate traffic over city streets, if reasonably required for safety, i.e. through residential areas.

States can regulate safety, through roadside and semi-annual inspections, and insurance, although Federal insurance requirements are substantially higher than State mandated limits.
