§17-6-3. Certificate of convenience for public transportation vehicles -- When required; vehicles engaged in interstate commerce.

No motor vehicle shall be operated over any public road, highway, street or alley in this state, for public transportation of passengers or property, or both, for compensation until the owner or operator of such vehicle shall first have made application to and secured from the state road commissioner a permit or certificate of convenience to operate such vehicle. Such classification shall include public livery vehicles, cars for hire or for rent, taxicabs, bus lines, truck lines, and any other public transportation of passengers or property for compensation, without regard to whether such operation is between fixed termini or over regular routes or otherwise.

The state road commissioner may also grant certificates of convenience and necessity and permits for the transportation of persons or property, or both, for compensation in interstate commerce and regulate such interstate commerce under the authority of and in accordance with the provisions of any statute that has been or hereafter may be enacted by the Congress of the United States, vesting in or delegating to the state road commissioner of West Virginia the authority, as an agency of the United States government, so to grant such certificates and permits, and so to regulate such commerce. If the Legislature shall by statute transfer from the state road commissioner to any other commission, board or officer, the authority to grant certificates of convenience and permits and to regulate intrastate transportation of persons or property, or both, for compensation, then the authority herein granted shall vest in such other commission, board or officer. The state road commissioner, or such other commission, board or officer, as the case may be, is hereby authorized to notify the proper department of the federal government of his or its assent to conform to the requirements, conditions and obligations of said statute of the Congress in regard to interstate commerce by motor vehicles.

§17-6-4. Certificate of convenience for public transportation vehicles -- Application for certificate of convenience; action of commissioner on application; operation under certificate.

The application for such permit or certificate shall be in writing and shall contain full information concerning the financial condition and physical property of the applicant, and shall state the capacity of such vehicle or vehicles and the purpose for which they are to be used. If the service proposed is to be over a regular route, or between fixed termini, then such route or termini, the rates proposed to be charged and the proposed schedule or time cards shall be designated. If the service proposed to be rendered is not over a regular route or between fixed termini, then such other matters as the state road commissioner shall from time to time prescribe shall be designated.

All vehicles operating under the provisions of Class J, section nineteen shall operate from a stand or stands, and the state road commissioner shall have power to grant a permit to any applicant who operates from a stand or stands and who does not propose to operate upon a regular schedule, but who is privately employed for a specific trip and who will not solicit or receive patronage along a route for which a certificate of convenience has been granted by the state road commissioner for the operation of vehicles over a regular route or between fixed termini: Provided, however, That vehicles operating under Class J, or Class K may receive passengers or property along routes for which a certificate of convenience has been granted, but not at or within two hundred feet of any building owned or maintained as a designated stop: Provided further, That the charge made by such persons operating under Class J or Class K for such service, when rendered over a route for which a certificate of convenience has been granted, shall not be less than the rate charged by the holder of such certificate of convenience.

The state road commissioner shall have the power to issue to any applicant a certificate of convenience, or to refuse to issue the same, or issue it for the partial exercise only of the privileges sought, and may attach to the exercise of the rights given by such certificates such terms and conditions as in his judgment the public convenience and necessity may require. No such certificate of convenience shall be issued by the commissioner until it shall be established to the satisfaction of the commissioner, after a proper investigation, that the privilege so sought by the applicant is necessary or convenient for the public, and that the service so proposed to be rendered by the applicant is not being adequately performed at the time of such application by any other person, partnership or corporation. If a certificate of convenience be granted for service over a regular route or between fixed termini, the state road commissioner shall prescribe the route, territory, schedule, fare or tariff in connection with such service, and in all cases may make such other rules and regulations relative to the operation of such vehicle or vehicles as public justice may demand. When such certificate of convenience is issued for service over a regular route or between fixed termini, no change shall be made in the route, schedule, fares or tariffs of such vehicle or vehicles, without the express permission of the state road commissioner.
