The NYC Local Law 30 required government agencies to comply by providing their licensees with language assistance in the top 10 languages. This affected the Taxi & Limousine Commission, which was required to provide licensees with clear and accessible language assistance when applying and maintaining their license(s). We were tasked by the External Affairs Director and Language Access specialist to design a solution that would comply with Local Law 30, without taking up limited IT resources, and meet the needs for a culturally diverse, low tech savvy, and multilingual population.
