D.C. Taxi Drivers' Voices Are Being Heard

Over the past few months, Washington, D.C. taxi drivers have joined together with the Washington, D.C. Taxi Operators Association, affiliated with Teamsters Local 922, for one strong voice. Drivers and the association have knocked on the doors of D.C. City Council members. They have written letters, sent emails, and made phone calls. They have rallied and marched on Mayor Vincent Gray’s office. They have made their voices heard!

DC Taxi Commission Removes Company As Credit Card Provider

The D.C. Taxi Commission has ordered Gleike to cease operating as a Payment Service Provider (PSP). According to the DCTC, Gleike has failed to meet DCTC regulations following financial problems that have jeopardized the required payments to drivers and payment to the District of the 25-cent surcharge, and other issues. The Washington, D.C. Taxi Operators Association has repeatedly asked to have implementation of the regulations for the PSPs to be halted or re-evaluated. The problems involving Gleike are another example of the problems that have been created by the PSP program.
