Hillsborough Public Transportation Commission meets this week

Tampa, Florida -- Hillsborough County's Public Transportation Commission will hold its regular meeting Wednesday, May 11 at 9 a.m. in the 2nd Floor Boardroom of County Center, 601 E. Kennedy Blvd. in downtown Tampa.

This group regulates the operation of taxicabs, limousines, vans, handicabs, wreckers and basic life support ambulances in Hillsborough County. 

People have applied for a certificate to drive a limo or taxicab and have been denied appear in front of the commission and often ask for waivers.

In addition, companies that want limousine permits also have to appear in front of the commission and show there is a need.

The organization has come under controversy in recent years. Hillsborough County is the only county in the state to have a public transportation commission.

There was a move to have it eliminated in this year's legislature, but it failed.
