The Fiscal Year begins October 1 and DFHV has an ambitious initiative to ensure all District residents have access to transportation.
Transportation as a Service (TaaS) is a pilot program designed to overcome transit barriers that many of our citizens face. TaaS is based on providing access to a ride whether you have a smartphone or bank account; accessibility should extend to all regardless of income, physical disability, or age.
TaaS will offer options to residents who register and qualify for rides. The service is intended to ensure a for-hire vehicle will be available when needed. So please sign up.
When it comes to developing innovative transportation strategies and providing customers more convenient, comfortable and safe access to rides, the D.C. Department of For-Hire Vehicles regards itself as a global leader.
To that end, the department’s aggressive strategy over the past two years has aimed to be a model for forward-thinking governments adopting plans to treat transportation as a service.
“We are a disruptor of the status quo,” said DFHV Director Ernest Chrappah. “I know that sounds strange coming from someone who works for a government agency that is a regulator. Well, welcome to a new day. The Department of For-Hire Vehicles has moved on well beyond the image of the D.C. Taxi Commission. DFHV is a nimble, enabler of change, that is creating new economic opportunities.”
