CPUC Trains Law Enforcement on Passenger Carrier Rules

This month and next we are continuing to conduct classes to train law enforcement officers about our transportation regulations and to explain how law enforcement can correctly apply the Public Utilities Code in their daily duties. 

The CPUC has regulatory and safety oversight over for-hire passenger carriers (limousines, airport shuttles, charter and scheduled bus operators) and Transportation Network Companies (TNCs).  We license passenger carriers and respond to and investigates complaints of unsafe, unlicensed, and uninsured passenger carriers.

The current training is in Fullerton. Our last class had approximately 30 attendees from the California Highway Patrol, Orange County Sheriff's Office, Huntington Beach Police Department, Riverside Police Department, Riverside Sheriff's Office, Fullerton Police Department, and Bakersfield Police Department.  

Subjects covered in the training class included types of passenger carriers, code sections to cite, elements of a passenger carrier-related crime, vehicle impounds, and basic TNC information. 

If you are going to hire a passenger carrier, please ensure they are licensed and in good standing with the CPUC by looking up the company in our online database
