Mile High Cab Back In the News

Cab drivers want new company
Say alleged violations against Metro Taxi is indication that Denver needs new company

A group of taxi drivers seeking to open their own cab service is using recent alleged violations against Metro Taxi as an example that the Denver area could use another company.

Mile High Cab, a group of about 150 local cab drivers fighting to open their own service, points out that Metro Taxi is currently facing 54 alleged violations for allowing drivers to work more than 80 hours in eight consecutive days.

The group of drivers says if companies like Metro Taxi are violating the so-called “80-in-8” rule, then that is an indication that there is not enough cabs on the road, but instead too many tired drivers.

A proposal by Mile High Cab to open a new company was rejected by an administrative-law judge earlier this month because the judge ruled that the new company would damage existing local cab companies. An attorney for the group is asking the Colorado Public Utilities Commission to overturn the judge’s ruling.

  1. The reality has been revealed. If PUC wants to liberate drivers and the society at large, should materialize the pioneering of Mile high cab. New company into the market (with a better service, with a better tariff, in customers request time, every where-not only in Down town) is not adding problem to the society. It is a promise of our founder. PUC let you understand competition to serve our society is not adding a fuel to the flame; it is in the dimension of solving the existing problem. It looks you are promising to keep the society in problem, keep promising foreign companies (like Yellow) to proceed with their illegal business doing in our country, promising to keep American dream beneath the foot of those illegally serving companies-like yellow. We all Americans are here to live American dream, to keep American in the healthy competition market-it is a land of freedom, land of opportunity. Mile high is requesting to set an opportunity for the society-not for the wealthiest company, set an opportunity for the market-dream of our founders. Please think at least few times and consider the offered opportunity.
