On March 23, the Limousine, Bus, Taxi Operators of Upstate New York (LBTOUNY) will be holding a business meeting via Zoom at 5:30 pm to discuss several legislative and industry-related items.
First and foremost, the association will be addressing stretch limousine laws that are scheduled to pass imminently after a report was issued by the state’s Safety Task Force with suggested actions and measures (full report can be read here). These include a 10-year “sunset” period on all stretch limousines that would, if passed in 2023, see anything older than a 2013 MY being pulled from the road. Also planned is a requirement of roll bars to be installed in the vehicle.
LBTOUNY also says they are working with local agencies and politicians to create new policies that will regulate illegal black car operators.
In addition to legislative items, LBTOUNY officers will provide trade show recaps, as well as updates on recent membership.
To receive the Zoom link for the meeting, operators are asked to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
