Nova Scotia Taxi Drivers Want Limo Rates to Increase

Posted on April 23, 2008 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia — Taxi drivers are petitioning Halifax Regional Councillors to raise limousine rates by 20%, when traveling to and from Halifax Stanfield International Airport. It costs roughly $50 to catch a cab or a limo from the airport and cab drivers no longer want to be on par. Some 124 taxi drivers have signed a petition for the change, which was brought before council this week.

Councillor Steven Adams, who is also chair of the Halifax Taxi and Limousine Advisory Committee (HTLAC) asks why limo rates should increase. "I find it rather illogical that a competing entity wants their competitions to charge more money. They could simply reduce their rates if they wish," Adams told News 95.7.

Bob Richards is a taxi driver, a limo company owner, and the limousine representative on the HTLAC. He says taxi drivers can't raise their rates. "Every time we turn around there's another costs, tires, repairs, gas is going up, insurance is going up. So how can we go for less than what we're getting when we're not getting what we should from the start," says Richards.
