Some Taxi Companies May Return To Charlotte Douglas

CHARLOTTE, NC– It’s been years since Charlotte Douglas Airport has opened its doors to “all” taxi companies.

Tonight we’re learning that those who have been shut out will finally have a chance to return.

Rudolph Kirkpatrick says his cab company received a letter on march 30th outlining the requirements cab companies will need to have in order to apply to pick up passengers at the airport.

Kirkpatrick says it’s too much, too soon.

“Have car painted, metered, medallion top light, you just cant do it and get all the inspections done. That’s what we already see the writing on the wall we thought the city wasn’t fair with it.” said Kirkpatrick

Cab company drivers will get to voice their concerns about the new requirements on Friday during a conference at the Government Center.
