The Seattle Mayor's Office is seeking applicants to fill the Taxicab Driver Position on the Seattle-King County Taxicab Advisory Commission.

The Seattle-King County Taxicab Advisory Commission was established in 2010 to study regulations, rules, policies and issues relevant to the provision of high-quality taxicab service in the City of Seattle and King County. A Commissioner's role is to ensure the economic viability owning and driving taxicabs, and to make recommendations to the City of Seattle and King County on these matters.

Advisory Commission members serve without compensation. Interested applicants must either work or live in the City of Seattle for the Mayoral appointments.

There are eleven seats on the Advisory Commission. Five of the seats are appointed by King County, five by the City of Seattle, and one is appointed by the other members of the commission.

Membership includes:

  • Three members who represent taxicab license owners;
  • Three members who represent taxicab drivers but not license owners, and who have not been an owner within the previous five years;
  • Three members who represent the hospitality and/or tourism industry and medical facilities as clients of taxicabs;
  • One member who is a person with a disability and/or represents persons with disabilities;
  • One member who is a person over the age of 60 and/or represents persons over the age of 60.
