Public Passenger Vehicles (PPV)

City Council Updates Public Passenger Vehicles Code

On April 23rd 2018, Eugene City Council approved changes to our public passenger vehicle code with a 7-1 vote. The approved Council Ordinance, No. 20590, can be found here.  These changes went into effect immediately, but you will not find them reflected in the City Code online for a couple months (updates to the online code happen at periodic intervals).

Next Steps:

  • In late April 2018, after City Council approved the changes the public passenger vehicle code, staff began the process of updating the Administrative Rules to align with the updated code.  Staff are currently evaluating and responding to public comments on both the proposed Public Passenger Vehicles Administrative Rule and Fee change orders. If the City Manager chooses to take action after considering the comments received, the proposed or modified Rules will be adopted by administrative order.

If you would like to stay informed about changes to the Public Passenger Vehicle rules, please sign up for our interested party email list.

Public Passenger Vehicles (PPV) in Eugene

A public passenger vehicle is any vehicle which is used for the transportation of passengers for hire, including, but not limited to, shuttles, horse-drawn carriages, non motorized bike cabs, and taxicabs.

A public passenger vehicle (PPV) license is required for any person or business to operate a public passenger vehicle company within the jurisdictional limits of Eugene and Springfield. However, an unlicensed public passenger vehicle operating outside of the jurisdictional limits of Eugene and Springfield may deliver a fare from outside those limits to a location within the limits, and if the vehicle waits for the person, retrieve the person for the return trip back outside the jurisdictional limits.
