Cabs reap what they sow

Perhaps if the management teams of these cab companies would have listened to the consumer and cleaned up the cars, drivers, and more importantly, the nasty dispatchers who were known for being rude and hanging up on people, we locals would have stood by and supported the local cab companies instead of jumping ship the minute someone came along with clean cars, clean drivers and great customer service.

The city needs to stay out of it, and the cabs can reap what they sow.
