Anchoring of taxi riders in search of lacking taxis
Ankorage policemen says the Ford Crown Vic was taken from a house on the 5100- block of Taku Drive's yellowness. Drivers talking to Channel 2 on terms of privacy say it was Taxi #28 and the licence number is KAJ 460. As with all amber cabins, the truck is fitted with a built-in satellite system, which only works when the car's computer system and radios are switched on, according to the drivers.
The Alaska Yellow Dispatch refused to give an opinion on this subject and asked all kinds of question to the rider. A number of taxi riders outside Anchorage Airport on Monday afternoons, awaiting tariffs, said they knew very little about the vanishing van, but were asked to look for the van.
Yellow and Checker riders said they had multiple reports on their computer about the event. In the meantime, the lacking driver's cabin operator urges the general population not to get into the car when they see it on the road.
Taxi Anchorage, Shuttles & Limousines
The BAC was founded at will by two buddies who had had enough of what they thought were kitschy limousine choices in Anchorage. 11 years later, the firm has grown into a major transport operator providing air and cruises transfer services, buses for companies, tailor-made travel arrangements and, of course, limos for city trips.
Gathering poll could restore the anchorage taxi industy.
The Anchorage taxi business could face major changes. At the Tuesday session, the Assembly will be voting on a move to remove the permanent number of taxis in the town, which would be done in a tiered way over the next few years. "What the regulation does is essentially (end) the kind of single dominant that the community has established around the number of taxis permitted to drive in the town, and is moving towards a more open market," said Bill Evans, the South Anchorage Assembly member who established the regulation.
Adopted, the move would eliminate the aftermarket for driving licences, which, according to Anchorage Chamber of Commerce records, can be more than $100,000. Anchorage currently has less than 200 taxi fees. Evans' move would allow 20 more licences to go on-line each year for five years, which would mean the transition to a fully open one.
Anchorage' cabin industrial criticism, along with evidence from evidence from Evans, says that there are not enough cars to satisfy demands, e.g. by breaking the pub, and that distant parts of the community such as Hillside and Eagle River are undersupplied. Adopted the action, if adopted, will not be used in app-based taxi sevices such as Uber and Lyft, which are currently blockaded from operation in Alaska under state law.
However, there are parts of the Act that open the doors to such businesses, and Evans plans to introduce a follow-up action that would give them the go-ahead if national legislation changes. There will be a special procedure, including a voting on whether to add a $1 fee to taxi tariffs where the client uses a debit to pay.
