Taxi & Limousine Cost Index

The Taxi & Limousine Cost Index (TLCI) is an objective tool that the Passenger Transportation Board uses to identify rate increases for taxis and limousines in British Columbia.

The TLCI provides an efficient and fair way for transportation companies to obtain periodic rate increases when operating costs rise. TLCI rate increases are based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for BC. They strike a balance between the interests of transportation operators and the consumers they serve.
