Alexandria Taxi Drivers Fight Regulation

Play associated audio

By Michael Pope

In Virginia, taxi drivers are worried about a city regulation requiring them to have two dispatch calls each day. If the taxi companies don't meet the standard, city regulators can shut them down.

Alexandria created the rule back in 2005 to prevent taxi drivers from spending all their time picking up fares at hotels and the airport. Since that time, one company closed because it couldn't meet the requirement and another has been put on probation.
