Data Collection and Analysis

The Department of For-Hire Vehicles strives to eliminate transportation inequities. Our efforts to meet this objective are supported by our commitment to revising Title 31 regulations and implementing the legislative changes outlined in the Omnibus Bill.

In order to improve accessibility, DFHV will use data analytics to inform decision making. The coll ection of trip information from all for-hire ride service providers will further integrate taxis and ridesharing services. F ocusing on consumers' needs means offering multiple service options, securing reliable response times, and ensuring fair pricing.

Under the guidance of Mayor Bowser, DFHV will take bold and comprehensive actions to establish effective policies and programs to serve operators and passengers.

Transport DC

DFHV recently joined members of the National Federation of the Blind of the District of Columbia (NFB-DC), Greater Washington Chapter, to discuss the Transport DC program. DFHV Administrative Officer Jerry Kasunic addressed the group and described the new customer-friendly telephone system (AWS) that will be implemented as a pilot project in February. The AWS is designed to automatically streamline customers to the company that booked the ride on their behalf. In addition, the Pool Rides Alpha Pilot Program was highlighted. Phase Two is likely to be introduced later in Fiscal Year 2019.
