It is the purpose of this ordinance to require that those persons operating taxicabs do so in a safe, fair and efficient manner. The taxicab industry constitutes an essential part of the City’s transportation system, and transportation so fundamentally affects the well-being of the City’s citizens that some regulation is necessary to ensure that the public safety is protected, the public need provided for, and the public convenience promoted. The provisions contained herein should be applied and enforced in such a manner as to require the taxicab industry to regulate itself, under City supervision, to promote innovation and adaption to changing needs, and respond to economics of the market place, so long as the public interest is served thereby. (Ord. 2969, added, 10/21/2008)
