Notes

  1. Taxi Drivers Licenses renewal dates will match those of the Manitoba Driver's License.
  2. Vehicle Licenses are renewable every March 1.
  3. Dispatch Licenses are renewable every March 1. Dispatchers must have separate licenses to operate a taxi dispatch and a PTP dispatch, however, only one license fee will apply.
  4. An accessibility surcharge will be charged on every trip (accessible and non-accessibletrips) during the month when less than 10% of all registered vehicles for hire of a dispatcher were accessible vehicles for hire demonstrated to have provided transportation services during the month. To count as an accessible vehicle for the purposes of determining the applicability of the accessibility surcharge, the dispatcher must demonstrate that an accessible vehicle provided multiple trips on at least one day per week in the month, was occupied on those days by a driver qualified to provide accessible transportation services, and was available on those days for dispatch to individuals who required accessible transportation services.
  5. A safety surcharge will be charged on every trip of a PTP during the month. This surcharge will be collected and all revenue from this surcharge will be used to support a program to promote safety and security in the vehicle for hire industry.
  6. The per trip fee is to be applied to all trips. For taxi vehicles this includes both dispatched and street hails. Per trip fees must be paid monthly within 30 days after the end of month. Interest is charged on overdue amounts at 18% per annum.
