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.

    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.

    Sec. 18c-6305. Prior Notice and Petition for Authorization. (1) Annual and Amended Lists of Points Under Consideration for Discontinuance. By March of each calendar year, each motor carrier of passengers shall submit to the Commission a list of routes and points which it is authorized to serve which the carrier has under consideration for discontinuance within the following 12 months. A carrier may amend its list on the 1st day of each subsequent month.
    (2) Notice of Intent to Discontinue. Not less than 30 days after a point appears on a list of points under consideration for discontinuance, the carrier may serve on the Commission the carrier's Notice of Intent to discontinue service. Such notice shall be for the purpose of alerting the Commission and allowing a period of time during which alternatives to discontinuance, or alternative service, may be explored.
    (3) Petitions to Discontinue.

The Commission may investigate the proposal, and may suspend the discontinuance pending the outcome of the investigation for a period not to exceed 90 days from the date the proposal is filed. The Commission shall determine, after considering the public need for service, revenues (both those which have been received and those which might be received, by subsidy or otherwise) and variable costs associated with the service, and the availability of reasonable alternative transportation service whether the public convenience and necessity requires continuation of the service proposed to be discontinued. If the Commission determines that the public convenience and necessity requires continuation, it shall so order; otherwise, the proceeding shall be dismissed.
    (4) Waiver or Notice. Prior notice requirements under this Section may be waived for good cause or where the carrier has made substantial compliance with such prior notice requirements or compliance is not necessary to effectuate the purposes of this Chapter.
