[46 Pa.B. 3776]
[Saturday, July 9, 2016]


By the Authority:

 The Philadelphia Parking Authority (the ''Authority''), regulates all taxicab and limousine service in the City of Philadelphia (the ''City'').1 The purpose of this Order is to authorize the sale of new taxicab medallions.2


It Is Ordered That:

 1. The Director of the Authority's Taxicab and Limousine Division (''TLD''), or his designee (the ''Director''), is authorized to administer the sale of 41 new Philadelphia taxicab medallions currently authorized by the Act.

 2. Each of the 41 medallions authorized for sale by this Order is hereby designated a WAV medallion, in perpetuity.

 3. Each of the medallions authorized for sale by this Order will be identified by the letters ''WP'' (Wheelchair Philadelphia), which shall precede the unique number assigned to the medallion.

 4. Each medallion authorized by this Order will be sold separately by sealed competitive bid, as provided by the Authority's regulations.

 5. Each sealed bid3 for a medallion must be filed with the TLD Clerk, by hand delivery, at the TLD's headquarters at 2415 South Swanson Street, Philadelphia, PA 19148.

 6. In order to be considered filed, a medallion bid must be time stamped by the TLD's Clerk.

 7. The Clerk may only time stamp a medallion bid as follows:

 a) Between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on the business day preceding the date of the scheduled medallion sale; or

 b) Between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. on the day of the scheduled medallion sale.

 8. The upset price for each medallion will be $10,000. The Board does not set this minimum bid based upon an understanding of fair market value, but as a basis to permit the market to set the appropriate value of this new class of medallion and to speed the introduction of this vital form of transportation service.

 9. The Director may, in his discretion, remove any medallion from a scheduled bid opening date. In this case, the sale of that medallion will be rescheduled for sale as provided in this Order.

 10. The Director may, in his discretion, remove any medallion from a scheduled bid opening date and place the medallion before this Board for a new sale authorization, pursuant to such terms and conditions as the Board may then impose.

 11. The sealed bids for the medallions will be opened by the Director at the TLD's headquarters at 10:00 a.m. at 2415 South Swanson Street, Philadelphia, PA 19148 as follows:
