Taxicabs Passenger Information

A taxicab is a for-hire motor vehicle that transports (8) eight or less passengers, exclusive of chauffeur and provides either street hail or pre-arranged taxicab service. Taxicabs are equipped with a taximeter, and the passenger controls the route and destination. Taxicab chauffeurs must have a chauffeur's registration issued by Miami-Dade County and must be properly displayed inside the vehicle.

Taxicabs must be affiliated with a Passenger Service Company that is licensed by the DTPW.  The Passenger Service Company’s logo and telephone number, as well as the taxicab’s vehicle number, are located on the taxicab.
