Taxicab Licenses are a requirement to operate a taxicab in the City of Plattsburgh (City Code Chapter 314). To obtain a taxicab license, one must fill out an application. Applications can be picked up at the Plattsburgh Police Department at 45 Pine Street or printed from this website. Applications must be filled out completely and with accurate information. A criminal records check will be completed on each applicant and the results submitted to the Chief of Police or his designee for review. If the application is approved, the original, signed form will be mailed back to the applicant at the address provided. If the application is denied, a copy of the application along with a letter explaining the reason for denial will be mailed back to the applicant at the address provided. Approved applications must then be dropped off at the City Clerk's office for the final steps in the process.
