Athens, GA Taxi Reform Petition sign now

The city of Athens desperately needs to change the way taxi services operate to better serve and protect the individuals that are seeking an alternative ride. The current system which consists of a simple background check for taxi drivers and arbitrary ride fares is unsafe and unfair for taxi patrons.

Taxi drivers are taking advantage of riders in this city in a way that other cities and college towns do not experience.

Reform should include:

A meter should be regulated and used to provide a consistent fare for patrons. This would eliminate paying $5 for one person or $25 for five people to the same location as well as leaving the fare up to the distance driven as compared to the driver's discretion.

A more intense background check for each driver should be required. We cannot have former criminals driving around vulnerable individuals to their place of residence.

Finally, taxi companies do not have to have the best customer service out there. But, they should have individuals that are fluent in English and respectful to customers answer comments and complaints. Simply ignoring a complaint should not be tolerated.


IF YOU AGREE THAT TAXI REFORM IN ATHENS, GA IS NEEDED, THEN PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO SIGN THIS PETITION SO WE CAN IMPROVE THIS SERVICE.
