San Francisco Could Be Easing Weekend Taxi Woes

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)- Plans are in the works to hold a hearing on whether more cabs should be put on San Francisco streets during peak periods, especially during weekend nights.

KCBS’ Bob Melrose Reports:

People looking for cabs on busy nights are often disappointed, especially if they live in a quieter neighborhood, such as the Sunset, or Noe Valley. But Malcolm Heinicke of the MTA has suggested a hearing to put more cabs on the street during peak periods.

Cabbies are upset at the idea, saying business is already down, and limo drivers, who do not use fare meters are grabbing a lot of their fares.

    “Peak Time” medallions are an outrage – the cab drivers are already living hand to mouth. The drivers are being treated as hostages of political fallout. Curse Malcom Heinecke! He is the very Satan of working drivers in San Francisco.

    That’s a good idea cab drivers don’t like it because they are greedy week end night drivers make $300 and over. My point is good for passengers and drivers ho can’t get cabs to drive the week end.
