Dav El / BostonCoach CEO and NLA board director Scott Solombrino is a strong advocate of FBI-certified fingerprint background checks for all ground transportation drivers and chauffeurs.
Taxi drivers in Boston are now getting fingerprinted as part of a new requirement. All of the city’s taxi drivers will have to get fingerprinted every year as they renew their taxi license.
The change comes as state lawmakers are weighing whether to include fingerprinting as part of background checks for ride-hailing companies like Uber and Lyft.
Scott Solombrino, president of Dav El / BostonCoach Chauffeured Transportation Network, is part of a coalition called Ride Safe Massachusetts, which is pushing for regulations for transportation network companies. He is also a board director of the National Limousine Association.
