NOLA taxi reforms land at Armstrong International Airport

NEW ORLEANS – Thursday afternoon, the New Orleans City Council voted to expand the new regulations for taxis to include cabs that service Armstrong International.

The move came at the request of Mayor Mitch Landrieu.

Armstrong International is in Kenner, but the city of New Orleans owns the property.

The new regulations require all cabs to have GPS, credit card machines, and security cameras.  Many cab owners and drivers say they can’t afford the new technologies.  They also say there’s a shortage of some of the equipment, so it’s unavailable.
