The Maryland Public Service Commission encountered a legal problem recently when petitioned to waive requirements that information on routes, fares, and schedules must be filed for company-sponsored vanpool programs. Commission law prohibits the waiving of these requirements. To solve this problem legislation has been introduced in the present session of the Maryland General Assembly calling for the Commission to issue an operating license to the sponsoring organization without public notice or hearings. In exchange for the operating license, the company must supply the Commission with a sworn affidavit including the identification of the work location being served, a description of the vehicles to be used, and statements that all persons who will operate the vehicles hold a chauffeur's license, and that the program will run on a not-for-profit basis. The proposed legislation also requires all employers to have evidence that each vehicle is insured and that the vehicles will be inspected annually.
