SFO Airport Spares San Francisco Limo Companies From Clean Vehicle Policy Until 2016

By San Francisco Limousine Specialist on November 30, 2010

The San Francisco International Airport (SFO) recently delayed enforcing its Clean Vehicle Policy program for limo services until 2016. SFO adopted the policy in 2000 to encourage all vehicles picking up and dropping off passengers to use alternative fuels by January 1, 2012. Limousines, cabs and all other service vehicles had until then to use electricity, propane or compressed natural gas (CNG).

The drivers filed a class-action lawsuit against the limo rental service, claiming that PlanetTran had violated state law by collecting tips and keeping them instead of disbursing them to drivers.

By San Francisco Limousine Specialist on August 21, 2010

California lawmakers passed a new law last spring to address safety concerns about limousine companies, charter-party carriers and school transportation.

New Powers for Vehicle Safety Agency in England to Crack Down on Illegal Limousines

By San Francisco Limousine Specialist on August 19, 2010

Law enforcement officials with England’s Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) have new powers in their efforts to crack down on illegal limousines. Previously, VOSA officers had to wait for police to pull over limos they suspected were operating illegally. The new provisions allow VOSA officers to deal with suspected illegal limos without having to wait for police assistance.
