Overview of Taxi Cab regulation in Chapel Hill The Town of Chapel Hill regulates Taxi Cabs and Limousines through the Code of Ordinances. The Code outlines a multi‐step regulatory process that involves several town departments.  Most of the related regulations are located in Chapter 20 of the Town Code.  A franchise issued by the town is required in order to provide a taxicab or limousine trip both originating and ending within the town. (CH CO 20‐3) Taxi Cab and Limousine Operators first must obtain a Franchise Permit. Franchise permits are issued by the Transit Department after the operator files a written application. The written application contains information such as: · The number of vehicles proposed to be operated by the franchise. · A description of the vehicles used in the operation. · The color scheme proposed to be used to identify vehicles under the franchise. · The experience of the applicant in the transportation of passengers for hire. · The location of proposed offices, taxi stands, dispatching stations, garages, or other facilities to be used in connection with the taxicab or limousine business.           (CH CO 20‐16) Applicants for franchise permits are also fingerprinted and undergo a criminal background check conducted through the police department. (CH CO 21‐18) Once granted a franchise, the business owner is required to obtain a business license through the revenue collector at the Town Business Office. The License fee is $25.00 yearly for each vehicle. (CH CO 10‐199) Each franchise is also required to maintain minimum liability insurance. (CH CO 20‐17) The franchise operator must bring each vehicle that will be used in the business to the police department for inspection prior to the vehicle being placed in service. After initial approval, each vehicle is inspected by the Police Department semi‐annually. (CH CO 20‐62). There is a $10 inspection fee per vehicle. Every driver who operates a vehicle for a franchise must obtain a driver’s permit.  (CH CO 20‐31) The driver’s permits are issued through the Police Department. Applicants must submit a medical examination report with their application. In addition applicants are subject to a criminal background check prior to approval. (CH CO 20‐32). Driver permits cost $20 each and must be renewed every 4 years. A list of the authorized Franchises and drivers is maintained at the Police Department. This list is used to ensure that taxi companies operating in Chapel Hill are in compliance with our ordinance.    

The Police Records Division is located at Police Headquarters, 828 Martin Luther King Blvd, Chapel Hill, NC 27514. The Records Division is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM until 5:00 PM.

Riding taxis in Chapel Hill will be more convenient and consistent, thanks to new taxi regulations that take effect January 1.

Reflecting the Council’s interest of maintaining consistent high quality taxi services in Chapel Hill, local regulations were updated for taxi fares and companies. The changes set a flat rate between $6 and $8 for an area that extends to a 1-1/2 mile radius around the Chapel Hill Central Business District. The flat rate zone includes all of the Central Business District, most of the main campus of UNC, and a large area of predominantly student occupied housing located north of Rosemary Street up to North Estes Drive. The western edge of the zone ends at the Carrboro city limit.

Trips that originate and terminate in the flat rate zone and cross over both Franklin and Rosemary streets are subject to the "cross over" fee. The cross over fee factors in short distance fares within the flat rate zone, supporting riders who wish to travel a short distance and compensating the taxi company for longer trips within the flat rate zone.

The Uniform Taxi Fare Schedule is as follows:

Flat Rate Zone:
• $6 per trip originating and terminating in the flat rate zone not crossing over both Franklin and Rosemary Streets (1 or 2 passengers).
• $8 per trip originating and terminating in the flat rate zone crossing over both Franklin and Rosemary Streets (1 or 2 passengers).
• $2 per additional passenger over 2 persons

Non Flat Rate Zone:
• $2.50 per mile with a $5 minimum fare (1 or 2 passengers)
• $2 per additional passenger over 2 persons
• $2.50 drop charge

Special Event Rate: When transporting passengers to or from any UNC home football game, men's basketball game, commencement activities, Festifall, and any other Town-sponsored events that cause significant traffic congestion, the Town Manager may designate a “special event rate” to be in effect for the duration of the event.
• $5 per passenger

Only taxi, limousine, and pedicab operators registered with the Chapel Hill Police Department are permitted to conduct business in Chapel Hill. Registered operators pay associated fees, submit to mandatory drug testing for driver permits, and all taxis must have working air conditioning. All registered operators will be prominently marked with registration stickers issued by the Town.

Taxi stands have been established at bus stops near the Carolina Coffee Shop on the 100 block of Franklin Street and near the Chapel Hill News on the 500 block of Franklin Street. Taxis will be able to park in these locations when buses are not in service, from 11:30 p.m. to 4 a.m.

The Council action was prompted by a petition from former UNC student body president Mary Cooper.
