Lightbulb TLC Launches New Web Car Service 'Base Finder'

To All Interested Parties:

March 18, 2014

For Immediate Release

NEED A RIDE, NEW YORK CITY?
TLC LAUNCHES NEW COMMUNITY CAR SERVICE "BASE FINDER"

The New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) today launched a new on-line Livery (or Car Service) "Base Finder" to help New Yorkers find the TLC-licensed service provider nearest, or otherwise most convenient to them. It will also convey to riders the location of bases that have Wheelchair-Accessible Vehicles affiliated with them for ready dispatch.

The intuitive new service, available on the TLC’s web site at www.NYC.GOV/Taxi, is accessed via the Passenger Information link on the left side of the home screen (http://www.nyc.gov/html/tlc/html/pas...assenger.shtml), or reachable more directly at https://data.cityofnewyork.us/datase...?firstRun=true.

"The 'Base Finder' function allows the riding public to use their geographic location to find the safe, licensed livery services that are most convenient to them," said the TLC's Chief Operating Officer, Conan Freud. "By mapping these bases, people can see where they are in relation to themselves, as well as to each other, which lets people make better, more geographically- informed decisions about which services they want to use."
