Currently, chartered, chauffeured transportation is regulated in the
state as luxury limousine service. Pursuant to rules of the public utilities
commission (PUC), a luxury limousine is a stretched limousine, an
executive car that is one of a list of authorized makes and models of
vehicle, or an executive van. Under the PUC's rules, a luxury limousine
must be 10 or fewer model years old.

Section 1 of the bill authorizes chartered, chauffeured
transportation through a livery transportation authority (authority). An
authority may provide service in the state if:
  • The authority provides service within and between points
in the counties of Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield,
Denver, Douglas, Garfield, El Paso, Jefferson, Larimer,
Pitkin, and Weld, and between those points and all points
within the state;
  • The authority has a fleet of at least 3 vehicles, each with a
manufacturer's suggested retail price of $35,000 or more,
or, if the authority is physically located in Gilpin or Pitkin
county, a fleet of 2 or more such vehicles; and
  • The authority applies for and obtains a permit from the
PUC, pays the permit fee, and maintains sufficient
Drivers for an authority must obtain a criminal history record
check, provide proof of medical fitness, and comply with hours-of-service
requirements. Vehicles used by an authority must be inspected at least
annually. The PUC may promulgate safety rules regarding authority
service; however, the PUC shall not promulgate rules regarding the age
or make and model of vehicles within an authority's fleet.
Section 2 makes a conforming amendment.
