Leveling the Playing Field

Washington taxi drivers are trying to level the playing field between them and app-based taxi businesses like Uber. On Wednesday, the D.C. Taxicab Commission approved a measure that will require every taxi driver to use an app that will allow residents to hail and pay for a cab through their smartphones. The app is called the Universal D.C. TaxiApp with testing scheduled to begin in March. [WTOP; previously]
