Notice of Intent to Review Rules

The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (Department) is reviewing the Transportation Network Companies program rules located at Title 16, Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 95 for re-adoption, revision, or repeal. This rule review is required every four years.

The Notice of Intent to Review was published in the Texas Register on September 3, 2021 (46 TexReg 5597), as part of a combined notice with several other rule chapters undergoing simultaneous review. The Department will determine whether the reasons for adopting or readopting these rules continue to exist by answering the following questions for each rule:

  • Is it obsolete?
  • Does it reflect current legal and policy considerations?
  • Is it in alignment with the current procedures of the Department?

The Department encourages anyone interested in the Transportation Network Companies program, under Chapter 95, to review the Notice of Intent to Review and the current chapter rules posted on the Department’s website.

Comments may be submitted electronically on the Department’s website at (select the appropriate chapter name for your comment).

Deadline to submit comments—October 4, 2021.

Reminder - Accessibility Pilot Program Report Due

This is a reminder that you must submit your report about your accessibility pilot program directly to the House Transportation Committee and the Senate Committee on Transportation no later than 75 days after your program ends.

As a refresher: State law requires Transportation Network Companies (TNC) permitted with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation to submit a report on the TNC’s accessibility pilot program, required by §2402.113, Texas Occupations Code to each legislative standing committee with jurisdiction over transportation issues.

We will not submit these reports to either committee on your behalf. Each transportation network company must comply with the law and submit their own report.

Please email with any questions.
