Charlotte, N.C. Operators Form New Association

Posted on March 11, 2009 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Charlotte Regional Limousine Association (CRLA) was recently founded by Jeff Canady, owner/operator of CLT Express Livery.

The growth of the black sedan industry in the Charlotte region along with increasing unimpeded rules, ordinances and regulations set up by The Charlotte-Douglass Airport authority and the City of Charlotte passenger vehicle for hire department (P.V.H.) led operators to unify. The CRLA wants all legal companies in the area to join the association in order to voice the industry’s concerns unilaterally.

The first meeting took place on Dec. 17, 2008. In January 2009, the following officers were elected by the association:

President: Tom Holden, Rose Chauffeured Transportation Vice President: Shawn Glasgow, Peak Limousine Treasurer: Cheryl Hosseini, Connections Transportation, Inc. Secretary: Laura Canady, CLT Express Livery

The CRLA will focus on addressing the Charlotte airport and City of Charlotte on the following topics: 1) Airport parking issues; 2) Inner-city and metro parking issues; 3) The benefits of being a legal operator; 4) Are the penalties severe enough for illegal operators? 5) Addressing Charlotte City council with a unified voice; 6) Association growth.

The association will meet the first Wednesday of every month. For more information or to join the association, contact Laura Canady at [email protected]
