WASHINGTON -- The nation's capital may have settled on a uniform color scheme for its taxicabs: red and white.
Those are the two colors that District of Columbia officials have picked for the city's much derided cabs. As part of on-going taxi-reform, Mayor Vincent Gray and D.C. Councilmember Mary Cheh (D-Ward 3) have settled on red and white, according to The Washington Post.
On Monday, the committee will have a hearing on Cheh's taxi-reform legislation, which has a provision to mandate a uniform color scheme, while still allowing a cab company's insignia to appear on the vehicle. Other improvements include mandatory GPS devices and credit card machines with printable receipts.
