Airport Cabbies Catch A Break

The city of Kenner announced an extension in the deadline for cab drivers who service Armstrong International to meet new requirements for their vehicles.

New Orleans leaders put the new restrictions in place for cabs in that city.  The requirements include installation of video cameras, credit card machines, and GPS.  The requirements were extended to cabs that service customers at the airport, which is owned by New Orleans but inside Kenner city limits.

The deadline was originally December 31, 2012, with an eye on having plenty of updated cabs on the streets and working for the Super Bowl in February.

But a limited supply of cameras and other equipment prompted the deadline’s extension.  Airport officials say they will monitor the supply situation and hope to present a solution at the next meeting of the Aviation Board.
