A brutal assault on a taxi driver last week is prompting a call to action.
“I don’t think anybody else wanted the task of regulating the taxi industry,” says the owner of a Philadelphia cab company who thinks the Parking Authority is doing a pretty good job of it.
A local cab company says it’s willing to provide handicapped-accessible taxis, but it’s waiting for permission from the Philadelphia Parking Authority.
The Philadelphia Parking Authority has approved a new taxi manufactured by the Ford Motor Company in the U.S. but no word yet on when you will see one on Philly’s streets.
