Transportation Rulemaking

Effective August 1, 2012, Transportation Rules were reissued in their entirety with amendments adopted in Docket No. 11R-792TR

Transportation Rules 4 CCR 723-6

In 2011 the PUC transportation statutes were recodified by the legislature. Rules governing transportation by motor vehicle have been amended to conform with the statutory changes.

The permanent rulemaking process is complete. Exceptions to the Administrative Law Judge's decision were filed by multiple parties. In reviewing the exceptions, the Commission has granted some and denied others. The decision doing so, C12-0581, was mailed on May 29, 2012.

Note: the changes in State law created by the signing of House Bill 12-1327 are not and will not be addressed in this rulemaking.

License Plate Requirements

State Law requires both luxury limousines and taxis operating pursuant to a permit or certificate issued by the Public Utilities Commission to have special license plates.

Both livery plates and taxi cab plates are obtained through County Motor Vehicle Offices. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in a police citation.
