Article 5. Basis Of Charges of California Public Utilities Code >> Division 2. >> Chapter 8. >> Article 5.
Charges for the transportation to be offered or afforded by a
charter-party carrier of passengers shall be computed and assessed
on a vehicle mileage or time of use basis, or on a combination
thereof. These charges may vary in accordance with the passenger
capacity of the vehicle, or the size of the group to be transported.
However, no charter-party carrier of passengers shall, directly or
through an agent or otherwise, nor shall any broker, contract, agree,
or arrange to charge, or demand or receive compensation, for the
transportation offered or afforded that shall be computed, charged,
or assessed on an individual-fare basis, except schoolbus contractors
who are compensated by parents of children attending public,
private, or parochial schools and except operators of round-trip
sightseeing tour services conducted under a certificate subject to
Section 5371.1, or a permit issued pursuant to subdivision (c) of
No person, partnership, corporation, or organization shall
sell transportation by a passenger stage on an individual-fare basis
for a sightseeing trip in California on a route for which a passenger
stage corporation has obtained a certificate of convenience and
necessity if the seller intends to charter or charters the passenger
stage in California at a rate per passenger which is less than the
individual fare for which the transportation is sold.
