Coming in 2015: IDNYC
Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the New York City Municipal ID card during his State of the City on January 31st, 2014. The New York City Council passed legislation to create the Municipal ID program in June 2014. Mayor de Blasio signed the bill into law on July 10, 2014. The New York City municipal ID program will improve access to the City's benefits and attractions for all, including those who have been left out of those benefits due to the lack of basic government-issued identification. With a population of over 8 million, New York City has the potential to have the largest City ID cards program in the nation and be available for all NYC residents.
