DC Cabs are Nearly There

October 1, 2013

According to a payment service provider report from Friday, an estimated 84 percent of cabs have credit card readers at the moment. That translates to just over 5,500 cabs in the 7,000 vehicle fleet.

Last week, a group of cabbies organized by DC Drivers United for Equal Rights requested a third extension from the D.C. Taxicab Commission, saying there were numerous issues with the PSP installation process. DCTC, in turn, said it would review “the specific hardship circumstances provided only through DC Drivers United for Equal Rights to determine if any relief would be warranted.” As of today, no extensions were granted.
