GARDEN CITY, N.Y. — A Long Island high school’s recent decision to ban limousines from this year's prom has left some parents relieved but many operators scrambling to make up for lost business. Garden City High School parents said the ban is a reasonable compromise, given that several other local high schools have canceled their proms altogether because of the event's extravagance.

Limousine companies say the actions of a few students have unjustly restricted or ruined the prom for others and hurt their businesses. One problem is unlicensed, out-of-state operators creating a bad image for the industry, operators said.
