The Commission regulates passenger and property motor carriers (“MC”). Passenger carriers are classified by authorized vehicle seating capacity. They include tour companies, limousine services, and other transportation providers. Property carriers are classified by the types of commodities transported and the nature of services performed, namely: general commodities, household goods, commodities in dump trucks, and specific commodities. By law, certain transportation services, including, without limitation, taxis, school and city buses, ambulance services, refuse haulers, farming vehicles, and persons transporting personal property, are exempt from Commission regulation.
In accordance with its statutory requirements, the Commission performs the following functions in the regulation of MC: (1) certification and licensing; (2) ratemaking; and (3) business regulation.
