Service Change Notice: ARA Vehicles for Hire

The City recognizes that vehicle-for-hire operations in Houston have been impacted by the COVD-19 outbreak. To provide relief to this critical part of our transportation industry, the City of Houston is extending taxicab and pedicab permit renewal dates to August 1, 2020.  If you have any questions, please contact our office at 832-394-8803 or email [email protected].


In addition, renewal of all vehicle-for-hire drivers licenses set to expire between March 11, 2020 and May 31, 2020 will be extended to August 1, 2020.  All drivers whose  City of Houston vehicle-for-hire licenses expire during this period will be mailed a temporary license to use with the picture license.  If you have any questions please call 832-394-8803 or email [email protected]


Thank you for continuing to serve the citizens of Houston during this critical time.
