Second Taxicab Modernization cleared at the City Council

On Tuesday, June 5, 2012, The DC City Council gave a preliminary approval, a bill B19-0630 sponsored by Councilmember Mary Cheh, that would require major changes to the city's taxicabs.The new requirements would include credit card readers, GPS navigation, panic buttons and uniforn Dome lights that identify when taxicabs are occupied, on-call,off duty or available for passenger pick-ups.

* This is not a final vote, but the majority of the council (9 to 4 ) agreed to go ahead with the bill to its final voting in the very near future.
