10.1. The Commission may make a regulation setting the maximum number of taxi owner’s permits that may be issued for each servicing area it specifies, for the services it identifies and subject to the conditions it determines. This number must, in the Commission’s judgment, foster a healthy balance, in each servicing area, between the demand for taxi services and the profitability of enterprises holding taxi owner’s permits. The conditions established by the Commission may limit the periods of service, the categories of clientele or any other aspect of operation. Such a regulation may be made only after consultation with, in particular, the holders of taxi owner’s permits concerned.
