Taxicab commission recommends sweeping reforms

Cincinnati’s notoriously unregulated taxis may finally become more uniform should recommendations of the Cincinnati Taxicab Advisory Commission become reality. Some of the changes include standardized cab fares throughout the region, more taxi stands, and establishing a “Bill of Rights and Expectations.” More from the Business Courier:

Councilman Wendell Young (D) sponsored a motion last fall to convene the commission, a task force charged with preparing a set of policy recommendations for council to consider and enact. “I want to be sure that the first and the last impression of our city that visitors have, which is often a cab ride, be a first-rate experience. Our taxi industry needs reform, and this event helped spark an urgency and an energy to get the work done.”
