Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

ARTICLE II. LICENSING

625 ILCS 5/18c-6201

    (625 ILCS 5/18c-6201) (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 18c-6201)
    Sec. 18c-6201. Requirements for Issuance of Licenses. (1) General Requirements. Except as provided in subsection (2) of this Section, the Commission shall grant an application for a motor carrier of passengers license, in whole or in part, to the extent that it finds that the application was properly filed, a need for the proposed service exists, the applicant if fit, willing, and able to provide the service in compliance with this Chapter, Commission regulations and orders, absent a showing that issuance of the license would be inconsistent with the public interest. Otherwise, the application shall be denied. In determining whether issuance of a motor carrier of passengers license would be inconsistent with the public interest, the Commission shall consider:
    (a) The value of competition which would result from issuance to the travelling public;
    (b) The effect of issuance on motor carrier of passengers service to small communities;
    (c) The effect of issuance on the ability of any other carrier to provide a substantial portion of the passenger service such carrier provides over its entire system, except that diversion of revenue or traffic from a carrier in and of itself shall not be sufficient to support a finding that issuance of the license would impair the ability of the other carrier to provide a substantial portion of the passenger service such carrier provides over its entire system; and
    (d) Any other factor relevant to the public interest.
    (2) Motor Carriers of Passengers Providing Service to or from Airports. The Commission shall grant an application for a motor carrier of passengers license authorizing service along any route where an airport is a point to be served on the route, in whole or in part, to the extent that it finds that the application was properly filed, a need for the proposed service exists, the applicant is fit, willing, and able to provide the service in compliance with this Chapter, Commission regulations and orders, and the public convenience and necessity requires issuance of the license. Otherwise, the application shall be denied. The provisions of this subsection shall be construed to impose the same entry requirements as were previously applicable under Section 55 of "An Act concerning public utilities", approved June 29, 1921, as amended.
