The Cab Drivers

Last week I shot a story for The Pitch magazine about a lawsuit the Kansas City Taxi Drivers Association is filing against the city so they can own their own cabs. The current law says that only taxi companies can request permits to operate cabs which the drivers feel prevents them from making more in fares.

These are pictures from the taxi waiting building at Kansas City International Airport. Drivers can’t wait at the terminals and must be called from a courtesy phone, which they say vistors rarely find. Because of the number of drivers and the few fairs, it is possible wait up to 12 hours for one fair.

Check out the great story by Ben Palosaari in the current print adition or read it online here. http://www.pitch.com/kansascity/taxis-kansas-city-bill-george/Content?oid=2816841
