the said Board will hold a PUBLIC HEARING on the matter of the establishment of additional taxicab certificates to be made available in the current biennial period of 2013 to 2014.  On June 18, 2013, the Board of Supervisors approved the issuance of 39 additional certificates (6.8% increase), with the caveat that this number could be changed in a subsequent resolution.  In July and August 2013, applications for 421 additional taxicab certificates were received from seven applicants.  Staff reviewed and evaluated the applications based on criteria affirmed by the Consumer Protection Commission (CPC).  Staff presented recommendations to the CPC to award the certificates to three of the seven applicants, and to allocate 29 of the certificates to hybrid or plug-in electric vehicles, and 10 certificates to be assigned to wheel-chair accessible vehicles.  The CPC held a Public Hearing on November 19, 2013, and recommended that the Board of Supervisors approve 78 additional taxicab certificates (13.4% increase), to be awarded to four applicants, with 58 certificates being hybrid or plug-in electric vehicles, and 20 certificates being assigned to wheel-chair accessible vehicles. 

                The CPC recommended to the BOS that the 78 certificates be allocated as follows:

Fairfax Yellow – 23 certificates, 9 of which are wheel-chair accessible vehicles

Red Top – 10 certificates, 1 wheel-chair accessible vehicle

White Top – 6 certificates

EnviroCab – 39 certificates, 10 of which are wheel-chair accessible vehicles
