The pressure on chauffeured transporation companies from airport administrators keeps getting worse. While it was great that U.S. Congress passed the RIDE Act a few years ago, the problem is getting U.S. airports to understand the legal rights of transportation companies serving airport users. It's also difficult to get airports to follow state policies that govern the industry and generally have more authority than airport rules. The presentation on these issues last night at the Greater California Livery Association meeting brought hope and relief to audience members. GCLA lobbyist Greg Cook talked about new regulations at San Diego and San Francisco airports, and negotiations with LAX administrators to make their comprehensive rule change proposal more efficient and realistic for transportation companies. San Diego is now requiring chauffeurs to wear ID badges and San Francisco is charging a $250 fine if chauffeurs are not wearing their required ID badges. GCLA lobbyists have been in recent discussions with the overseeing Public Utilities Commission and with state legislators. According to Cook, this may lead to new California statewide regulations that also include airports, which would greatly benefit the airport transportation practices of chauffeured transportation companies.
