Okay, I know so many of you out there are sick of the excuses the City of Seattle makes about enforcing the rules governing the "for-hire" cars and the limos and all of the new entrants like Lyft and Sidecar. Now, on Friday August 2nd, between noon and 2 PM you and your taxi are requested to converge on Seattle's City Hall to peacefully drive around and around the building for as many times you find necessary. The message all of us will be sending is simple. We demand that the City of Seattle begins following their own rules and regulations regarding all kinds of for-hire vehicles and services. I know you are tired of having our business stolen while the City does little to nothing about it.
The timing of the demonstration is tied to the scheduled release of the demand audit by Cooper & Mundy at the City Council on Thursday, August 8th, at 2:00 PM. Please attend that too if possible but the Friday taxi rally is more important. It is supported in part by the Teamsters Union and we need hundreds of taxis from all of the associations to show their collective support. I too will be out there in a Yellow taxi leading the charge.
