What you should know.
Our fares are set by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police
Department's Passenger Vehicles for Hire (PVH) Office. Established in May 2000, the PVH administers
and enforces Chapter 22 of the Charlotte City Code, the PVH Ordinance. The PVH Ordinance can be
viewed at http://www.municode.com/. The PVH
ordinance regulates the licensing, inspection, and operation of all passenger vehicles for hire that
operate within Charlotte's corporate city limits. Applicable vehicles include all taxicabs,
limousines, shuttle vans, special needs, transportation vehicles, contract vehicles, and non-metered
passenger vehicles for hire.
The Passenger Vehicles for Hire office also works with the PVH Board, City Council, and City Manager's
office to regulate company, vehicle, and driver quality and operating standards. Our common goal is to
ensure sufficient, professional, and safe for-hire transportation service to all citizens of Charlotte and
those who visit our city. To find out more about PVH companies, you click here to view the
