ASPEN, COLO. — Aspen Airport limousine and taxi operators recently met with airport officials to discuss the issue of unlicensed drivers and hotel van operators they claim are poaching their business.
The operators say that these drivers are luring in passengers with less expensive fares and intercepting business from local drivers who would take stranded travelers to the Denver International Airport. The situation puts Aspen Airport in a tough spot as officials worry that cracking down on rogue drivers can be counter productive to providing good customer service to travelers who want to leave the terminal. Unsatisfied with the enforcement effort at the airport, local cab, shuttle, and limousine drivers plan to create a ground transportation committee to further address the problem.
