Cabbies still waiting for a chance at new venture
Company wants to expand services to Jeffco

A two-year battle continues for cabdriver Edem "Archie" Archibong as his dream of creating another cab company in Denver was recently denied by the Public Utilities Commission.

Archibong, along with 150 cabdrivers, wants to create a company that serves five Denver-area counties, including Jefferson and Adams counties, and offers lower fares and more available cab service.

The Colorado Public Utilities Commission (PUC), which regulates the taxi industry, said in a July ruling that adding Mile High Cabs to the market would harm the public and existing cab companies because of destructive competition.

Mile High Cab applied to the PUC in 2008 and has been waiting to hear their fate since.
