A Taxiing Situation

By: Mr. Wilson on September 20, 2006
I admit I know very little about the topic, but I really don't understand why it is so blasted difficult for a company to offer taxi or taxi-like services in Lincoln and Lancaster County. Why does the Public Service Commission think it is in the public's best interest to protect Servant Cab's monopoly, especially considering the public is clamoring for something better? What is it about open competition that the Public Service Commission finds so distasteful?


See what your friends and neighbors have to say about this.

Lincoln’s taxi service shouldn’t even be called that.  If you ever called them, they would give you a two-hour window of when they would show up and you were just supposed to keep your eyes peeled.

This is good news for Lincoln.

I’m rather sick of the taxi cars in Lincoln. Not that I’ve ever ridden in one, but every time I’m behind one, I know it- their cars all seem to emit noxious fumes. I find the pairing of the pollution and the bible verses on the back funny.

I find it difficult to believe that something shady isn’t behind the decision not to let another taxi company operate here in town.

I find the Bible versus comforting.  If the taxis were cutting me off in traffic, that would be another matter. 😊

I can’t believe the taxi service in Lincoln makes enough money to be shady, but you never know.
