How does the new reciprocity law (effective November 14, 2006) affect me?
The recent passage of New York State bill S8400 / A1054b sets requirements for jurisdictions to qualify for reciprocity. Only Nassau, Westchester, and New York City (NYC) can qualify. Nassau currently does not meet the requirements of this new legislation; however, we have secured the following privileges with NYC.

If you have a Nassau for-hire vehicle (FHV) registration diamond you may:
  • Drop off at NYC airports
  • Drop off anywhere in NYC
  • Pick up at NYC airports for destinations outside of NYC excluding Westchester County


Currently not permitted are pick ups elsewhere in NYC (that is, pick ups in NYC not at an airport) for destinations outside of NYC.

Nassau is currently working to meet all qualifications as stipulated in the new state reciprocity law. We will update this site as soon as there are any changes.
