Dear TLC Licensees

The World is changing around us and many of you are without work as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. You are a top priority for the TLC and we recognize that you are among the hardest hit by this public health crisis. As we look at all possible ways to help you and as we assess needs citywide, we ask for your assistance and participation in the City’s response.

We are looking for TLC-licensed drivers to help the City of New York with important work related to COVID-19, such as delivering food to senior citizens who need to stay home. Visit DeliveryTLC to learn more and register your interest today.

Initially the need for drivers will be small, but expected to increase as more residents request meal delivery. This work will be paid: Drivers will be paid $15/hour, plus reimbursement for gas mileage and tolls. Drivers will be selected on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you are not initially selected, we hope to reach you in the days ahead as demand for meals increases.

  2. Register by providing some simple information, such as your name, phone number, email, TLC license number, and details on getting paid
  3. Sign up for your first shift in the app

Finally – remember to keep yourself and your neighbors safe. Do not sign up for shifts if you are feeling sick. Visit the Health Department’s website for more information for how to protect yourself and others.

Don’t fall for this folks. It’s minimum wage to burn up the limited life span of your car. Plus you’ll be in high risk of exposure to the virus. “Top priority” my foreskin! More like, “we’re tapping into our unused and expendable resources”. It’s better to be paid $0.495 per minute than the $0.53 per mile from the federal mileage reimbursement rate.

Guys, $15 after expenses is not too bad
since some experts say that the unemployment rate is going to be higher then during the great depression in 30s. around 25-30%.
Minimum wage you mean and that's not after expenses more like less than $10 after expenses to be close to front lines of the pandemic...unless you have private car

anyway it’s better then to be unemployed
No because you are a city agency and if you are offering this kind of job you need to protect the people: 1st you have to be sure that the drivers don't carry the coronavirus (it means test it), 2nd you have to give gloves, protective masks to perform this job. Even the hospitals are in shortage of masks and gloves. The system is completely broke.....the greatest nation in the world ( words of the liar in Chief)didn't even have enough test kit that they had to buy and import while it's able only to produce guns and bullets for several wars.
