NYC TLC ISSUES 600 NEW DRIVER-ONLY FHV LICENSES FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLES, LICENSES FILL UP WITHIN 5 MINUTES
Interest in the 600 EV licenses that TLC made available to For-Hire Vehicle (FHV) drivers this morning was so high that applications were fully filled in under 5 minutes. By 10:30am, more than 25,000 unique users had visited the application page.
“The City’s FHV drivers sent a clear message this morning: They are more than happy to go green,” said TLC Commissioner David Do. “The demand for the 600 EV licenses was extraordinary, and this is a very positive indicator for the Mayor’s and TLC’s initiative to go 100% zero emission by 2030. We are going to take this demand into account as we move forward.”
The licenses released this morning are part of an effort to spur development of the city’s electric charging infrastructure and support a cleaner, more sustainable future.
