January 30, 2020 - The Dept. of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA), Corporations, Securities & Commercial Licensing Bureau (CSCL) issued a Cease and Desist Order against De-Nexus Transportation Services II LLC in Clinton Township – effective January 27, 2020 – for operating as a limousine carrier without registering with the Department, as required under Michigan’s Limousine, Taxicab, and Transportation Network Company Act.
To date, the company failed to submit an application to the Department, yet the company continues to advertise its limousine carrier services while unregistered. A referral was also made to the appropriate criminal law enforcement agency.
The Limousine, Taxicab, and Transportation Network Company Act (2016 PA 345), which became effective March 21, 2017, moved the regulation of taxicab carriers from local to state jurisdiction, and moved the regulation of limousine carriers (eight or fewer passengers) from the Michigan Department of Transportation to LARA. Michigan joined more than three dozen states that have similar laws in place. Information regarding how to obtain a taxicab carrier, limousine carrier, or transportation network company registration may be found at www.mi.gov/tnc or by calling CSCL’s Licensing Division at (517) 241-9221.
