Electric Cabs May Be Green, But Still Face Taxi Regulation
Granted, the electric cab company has been operating without a permit, and has therefore received over 200 tickets for doing everyday business.
Austin City Councilman Chris Riley explains that taxi regulation takes time and due process:
"You just have to figure out how it's going to work: where are the stands going to be, how do you license and regulate these people, how many franchises do we allow. We have to make sure we get those things right," said Riley in this KXAN investigative report.
