Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission; Bureau of Transportation and Safety v. Tri-Star Enterises, Inc., t/a Car One & Supershuttle; Doc. No. C-2009-2074371
The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (Commission) is a duly constituted agency of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania empowered to regulate public utilities within the Commonwealth. The Commission has delegated its authority to initiate proceedings which are prosecutory in nature to the Bureau of Transportation and Safety and other bureaus with enforcement responsibilities. Pursuant to that delegated authority and Section 701 of the Public Utility Code, the Bureau of Transportation and Safety Prosecutory Staff hereby represents as follows:
1. That Tri-Star Enterprises, Inc., t/a Car One & Supershuttle, respondent maintains its principal place of business at 333 Jenkintown Commons, Jenkintown, PA 19046.
2. That respondent was issued Certificates of Public Convenience by this Commission at Application Docket No. A-00113748, F.1 for limousine authority, F.2 for schedule route authority, and F.3 for airport transfer authority.
3. On March 17, 2008, Enforcement Officer William Kilrain contacted J. Lakis, the Manager of Tri-Star Enterprises, Inc., t/a Car One & Supershuttle, to conduct its annual safety inspection. Mr. Lakis advised Officer Kilrain that Tri-Star Enterprises has not been active in the airport transfer carrier business in the last four years and does not know when they will enter it again. Respondent abandoned or discontinued airport transfer service without having submitted an application with this Commission to discontinue service.
4. That respondent, by failing to file an application to discontinue airport transfer service with this Commission, violated 52 Pa. Code § 3.381(a)(1)(v) and 66 Pa.C.S. § 1102(a)(2).
Wherefore, the Bureau of Transportation and Safety Prosecutory Staff hereby requests that the Commission revoke Tri-Star Enterprises, Inc., t/a Car One & Supershuttle's certificate of public convenience at A-00113748, F.3, for the illegal activity described in this complaint and order such other remedy as the Commission may deem to be appropriate.
