While many people are planning to say goodbye to 2016 tomorrow, local cab drivers are gearing up for their busiest night of the year.
President of the B.C. Taxi Association Mohan Kang says over 1,100 taxis will be on the roads.
“They put more people in the dispatch system so they can take more phone calls, take more reservations, double the staff that night.”

But Kang says, often the delays coming from customers double-booking cabs.
“Because those another one or two companies, who would be serving some other client won’t be there because somebody overbooked, like booked more than one cab company.”
Kang says, depending on how far taxi drivers are rerouted, that can delay the time of arrival.
He says people should plan ahead and start calling in the afternoon.
