Is it too easy to hail a taxi in Colorado? Do you pay too little? Should the government stifle competition and protect big business? We don't think so either. Email us at MileHighCab@gmail.com

Look For, The Union Label ...

Transit workers like Mile High Cab ...

Wow, we were surprised, but pleasantly so! Yesterday we learned Amalgamated Transit Union, Local 1001, Westminster, has sent a letter to the Public Utilities Commission on behalf of Mile High Cab.

Thank you very much! The Amalgamated Transit Union represents some 180,000 bus, subway and transit workers in 270 Locals. These fine people know the roads and they know the transit needs of the people of Denver. Their words of support mean a lot.

Join them, tell the PUC that you want better service and prices for consumers, and better working conditions for the 150 owner-operators of Mile High Cab.

Here's what the Amalgamated Transit Workers had to say:

Denver, CO 80202

RE: Application of Mile High Cab
Docket Number 08A-407 CP

To Whom It May Concern:

I believe that Mile High Cab should be able to operate a cab company in the Denver Metro Area. Increased competition would benefit the community. Mile High Cab would charge 25 cents less per mile than two of the existing cab companies and also would not charge extra for additional passengers or baggage. Competition of another cab company will benefit consumers. It is in the best interest of the entire community for the PUC to allow Mile High Cab to operate in the Denver Metro Areas.

  3. Gracias Amalgamated for your support. Mile high Cab can only bring more competition and as a result, better service and reasonable price.
