The Portland City Council, acting through the Office of the Mayor and the Office of Commissioner Steve Novick, convened the Private For-Hire Transportation Innovation Task Force (Task Force) in December
2014 to review and evaluate the service performance and regulatory framework of Portland’s private for-hire transportation (PFHT) industry, and provide guidance and recommendations to the City Council regarding how the industry should evolve and respond to new developments in the industry, including
the entry of Transportation Network Companies (TNCs). The Task Force, assisted by Cogan Owens Greene as a neutral Facilitator, has been asked to study available information, develop written recommendations, and submit its written recommendations to the Commissioner and City Council.
