Client: iTaxiworkers Association
Public Interest partnered with the iTaxiworkers Association to support a campaign demanding significant taxi reform policies from City Hall to make all taxicabs driver-owned, ending unfair cash grabs by various industry middlemen. The campaign won a decisive victory at City Council on Wednesday, February 19th, 2014. Rejecting a more conservative set of reforms, council voted 31 to 12 in favour of overhauling the taxi industry within the next ten years. Hundreds of drivers wearing green t-shirts with logos proclaiming “No Middlemen” attended the council session and were overjoyed to witness the results.
