New "800 Hours Only" Driving Requirement for Medallion Holders
Medallion holders now only have to work 800 hours. The 156 shifts is a thing of the past. This applies to new medallion holders same as everybody else. I'm passing along this letter third hand to make sure everybody sees it.

Yes, you are correct. Several people pointed out that the rule about driving 156 shifts in the first full year after you receive your medallion was somewhat nonsensical. So we changed to it to 800 hours, same as any other year. Any partial year, such as the year of receiving the medallion, would be pro-rated. There is still a lingering reference to 156 shifts in the definition of full-time driving in the regulations, but we will get that out in the next amendment.
