Cab Companies Address Concerns

It appears city officials and taxi company owners in Thunder Bay have many of the same concerns.   Councillor Brian McKinnon is heading up the committee looking to make changes to the taxi by-law,  and says a meeting between the two sides today was very productive with  both sides appearing to be on "the same page".   Under the new plan,  the Police Services Board will hand the regulation of taxis to the city.  McKinnon says don't expect cab fares to go down as a result of the change unless the companies can get some of their major concerns addressed,  like eliminating the red tape for hiring new drivers.
