Advisory Regarding Hackney Medallion and Drivers License Renewals

To All Cambridge Medallion and/or Hackney Driver's License Holders:

We know that everyone in the taxi industry has suffered a significant impact and loss in the past few years. As such, the renewal fees relating to all hackney medallions and driver's licenses are being WAIVED for 2017 and 2018. Please note, that even though the renewal fees are being waived, there is still a process to be followed for the renewal of medallions and driver's licenses. For medallion renewals, the information on how to renew your medallion will be available to download online as of mid-March 2017. For hackney driver's license renewals, drivers will receive information by mail at the time that corresponds with our records and new procedures.

We are still working on other initiatives and hope to come up with ways to further assist you and this industry. Any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Hackney Unit at 617-349-6146 or via email at Hackney@cambridgema.gov.
