The Vancouver Taxi Association has filed a lawsuit against Suburban Taxi Companies after operating what they allege to be unlawful taxi services in their city.
Carolyn Bauer is the general manager of Yellow Cab, and speaks for the Vancouver Taxi Association.
“There’s lack of enforcement in Vancouver. There’s so many Suburban Taxis operating down in Vancouver. They’ve all painted themselves yellow. They’re all unaccountable for anything; I get all the calls specifically at Yellow Cab and we’re tired of it. We’re just tired of it.”
“It’s all about safety, it’s all about accountability. We follow the rules and regulations the province and the city of Vancouver set out. And so should the other taxi companies that operate in the Suburban company.”
Bauer says it’s time they take steps to enforce the regulations handed down by the province and the city.
None of the allegations have been proven in court.
