The Cleveland Taxi Experience

Posted Friday, November 3, 2006

If your image of a cabbie is still Taxi's Alex Reiger, Latka Gravas and the Reverend Jim Ignatowski, then maybe the City of Cleveland is onto something. Some council members want to enact laws making the taxi experience a little less of a gamble, but at whose expense? We'll talk to a cab company owner, and the councilman pushing for change. Then, as the travel holidays approach, what do you need to know before you head to the airport? That's Friday morning at nine on The Sound of Ideas.



Taxi Bill of Rights - Kevin Kelley, Cleveland City Council member; Brian McBride, owner, Yellow Cab. Holiday Travel - Arlene Goldberg, owner, Action Travel of Solon; Kristi Van Auken, Director of Marketing, Akron-Canton Airport; Andrew Thomas, aviation security expert
