What is a limousine?

A limousine is an unmarked luxury passenger automobile that is not a bus, pickup truck, taxicab, truck, or multi-purpose vehicle (MPV), and seats 15 or fewer passengers (including the driver). Operating a limousine must meet the following conditions:

  • Service is for-hire
  • Service is not provided on a regular route
  • Arrangements are made before service is provided
  • Seating capacity is 15 or fewer passengers (including the driver)
  • Service charges are more than a taxicab for a comparable trip
