As part of its licensing process for Transportation Network Providers (sometimes called Ride-hail Providers), Chicago requires the companies to report on their activities monthly. These requirements are set forth in Chapter 9-115 of the Municipal Code of Chicago and Rule TNP2.02 issued by the Department of Business Affairs & Consumer Protection.
For questions relating to these reporting requirements, please e-mail email@example.com.
For TNP matters relating to anything other than data reporting, please e-mail BACPPV@cityofchicago.org.
Below are the deadlines to have all required files (exceptions listed below the table) submitted to the City of Chicago. If a listed due date falls on a weekend or City of Chicago holiday, the actual due date is the next non-holiday weekday.

Unless stated otherwise, for all files and fields unavailable or unknown values should be left blank. The number 0 should be used only when the value is known to be 0, not as an indicator of missing data. N/A or similar should not be used unless it is the actual text value of the field or the instructions specifically say to use it.
The trip request, location, and communication files are not required to be submitted on a regular basis, and shall be submitted as requested by the City.
*New fields are marked as NEW in the field column for each data file page on this site.
Submit at least five separate CSV files with the following naming convention, where [company] denotes the submitting company, [topic] represents one of the areas being requested: trip, driver, session, vehicle, compensation, and [date] corresponds to the period covered by the file (not the period when the file is submitted). For instance, ACME service submitting the driver file of drivers eligible in March 2016 would submit “acme-driver-201603.csv”.
Five files should be submitted monthly, consisting of one each for trips, drivers, sessions, vehicles, and compensation. TNPs will receive separate communications if a file should be submitted for trip requests, locations, or communications.
