Teamsters Local 922, D.C. Taxi Drivers to Hold A Second Caravan for Fairness

Taxi drivers in Washington, D.C. are hitting the streets again for a caravan for fairness on Wednesday, October 8, 2014. The drivers are demanding fair legislation from the DC Council. Taxi Companies, UberX, Lyft, and others should follow the same regulations, rather than the proposed two-tiered system that gives a competitive advantage to private vehicles for-hire and keeps the public vehicles for-hire strictly controlled.
