Re: do cabs require car seats in the city?

  • No, car seats aren't required in cabs in NYC.

    From the TLC FAQs:

    ? What are the rules regarding child safety seats and seatbelts in taxicabs?





    Drivers of yellow medallion taxicabs and for-hire vehicles and their passengers, are exempt from laws regarding car seats and seatbelts.  Keep in mind, the TLC encourages everyone in the vehicle to buckle their seatbelts while riding in a cab.  There are no Taxi and Limousine Commission rules regarding this, as it is a State exemption. Passengers with children are encouraged to bring their own car seats, which the drivers must allow passengers to install.

    *NOTE - Children under the age of seven are permitted to sit on an adult's lap.

  • You are not required to use one in NYC cabs. If you want to you can and it is part of the law that they have to let you, but have the meter running while you put it in/take it out.
    I did see a seat once online that was easy to take in/out and folds up but can't find it. You might want to do a google search. It was supposed to uncomfortable but worked.
    good luck!
