D.C. Taxis Set to Become Red and Gray
The DC Taxicab Commission approved final regulations defining sedan vehicles and a uniform color scheme for taxicabs Aug. 19. The uniform color scheme is a red with a gray stripe along both sides containing the company name, logo and contact information. Vehicles in need of replacement will be the first to adopt the new scheme. Characteristics to define sedan vehicles include the following, the commission indicated: an “L Tag,” a ban from accepting street hails, no meter, and specific size and color restrictions.
The commission also reported “the establishment of two panels for further regular revision. The panels are comprised of DCTC commissioners Paul Cohn and Gladys Mack. The objective is to study the complaint procedures and formulate appropriate enforcement actions.” For more information, visit dctaxi.dc.gov.
