Attending WEFTEC 2012? Learn About the New Orleans Taxicab Reform

Visit weftec.orgThe New Orleans City Council has successfully passed several taxicab reform ordinances. This begins a pathway to a more successful public transportation system in New Orleans.

Some of the reforms include mandatory credit- and debit-card machines, implementation and use of GPS systems, placement of in-vehicle security cameras, issuance of Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant certificates of public necessity and convenience, and age limits on vehicles (7 years maximum) by 2014.

The Water Environment Federation (Alexandria, Va.) looks forward to what these reforms will bring to New Orleans for WEFTEC® attendees, since the conference will be held there biannually starting at WEFTEC 2012, Sept. 29–Oct. 3.
