Dear Taxi Industry Members,

Please be advised at its April 18th meeting, the SFMTA Board voted to remove references to the Board of Appeals from the Transportation Code, Division II, Article 1100, Sections 1119- 1121. Additionally, Director Tumlin has notified the Board of Appeals that the SFMTA has discontinued the informal practice of allowing the Board of Appeals to hear appeals related to taxi permit decisions as of April 20, 2023.

There are no pending taxi permit appeals before the Board of Appeals. Notwithstanding the discontinuation of the Board of Appeals hearing taxi appeals, taxi permit applicants or permittees still have the ability to appeal an adverse permit decision to a neutral Hearing Officer as set forth in Article 1100 of the Transportation Code. A decision of a Hearing Officer made under Section 1119 is the final administrative decision. The aggrieved applicant or permit holder may obtain judicial review of the administrative decision by filing a petition for review in accordance with California Code of Civil Procedure Sections 1094.5 and 1094.6.
