The Latest Kansas City Taxi Protest
Take a look at even more Kansas City Taxi controversy underway this week . . .
KCTV5: Cab drivers protest 'unfair' exclusive taxi contracts
"Everyone is licensed and goes through the same requirements to be a driver here in the city, and it is not fair that one company gets to use it just because they have more money than everybody else," protestor Michael Bond said.
Jim Ready is the city's manager of regulated industries. He said the city is looking at ways to try to make the system more fair but adds it is perfectly legal for businesses to contract with one company.
Remember that TKC reported concerns about this story earlier in the year around February WITH a reply from Kansas City Taxicab honcho Bill George who seyz:
"Private business can choose companies they do business with. Just like a hotel selects a produce vendor, linen company, etc."
In light of the recent LYFT controversy . . . This old school cab battle reminds us of the constant struggle on local streets to make a buck.
