MONTREAL – The City of Montreal is making policy changes to improve the taxi industry.
Mayor Denis Coderre made the announcement Thursday afternoon, along with Aref Salem, the city councillor who heads the executive committee on transportation.
Their mission is to make Montreal taxis cleaner, greener and safer.
Some of the changes the city hopes to implement are:
Another issue that was address was the uniformed look of Montreal’s cabs.
The City wishes to make each of its drivers an ambassador of Montreal.
The Mayor said he wants to develop a strong and distinctive image for Montreal taxis, giving them a “visual signature” and one colour.
They haven’t decided what colour the cars will be but when pressed by reporters, Coderre said, “when we get there we’ll come back and consult you on it.”
What colour do you think Montreal taxis should be?
