►The City of Chicago Transportation Network Providers (TNP) Ordinance establishes a licensing and regulatory framework for the TNP Industry, also referred as the ride-hail or ride-share industry. The TNP Ordinance focuses on:
► A TNP company provides prearranged transportation services for compensation through an Internet-enabled application or digital platform to connect passengers with drivers of vehicles for hire. TNP drivers and their vehicles join and become affiliated with TNP companies and are then available to be dispatched through the TNP’s digital platform. Each TNP company must be licensed. The TNP license is an annual license which is not transferable.
► Affiliated TNP vehicles and drivers must obtain for display a TNP Vehicle Registration Emblem with TNP Chauffeur License through their affiliated TNP company
► The TNP Ordinance is Chapter 9-115 of the Municipal Code of Chicago and went into effect September 2, 2014.
