The collection contains records related to the New York City taxicab industry, particularly pertaining to regulatory issues in the 1970s and 1980s.

In addition to publications and records, the collection also includes notes written by Rogoff chronicling his experience driving a taxicab on the streets of New York City, notes from interviews with taxicab drivers and transcripts of testimony given by Rogoff at various committee meetings.
