All 18 city cabs back in service after fixing inspection issues
Kevin Kincaid, director of licensing enforcement for the Manchester City Clerk, said Manchester Taxi is replacing a cab that failed inspection and will put it on the road today, which will put all 18 back on the road. Kincaid said the cab company is replacing that car because it was nearly nine years old, the end of its shelf life.
He explained that under city regulations, any licensed cab must be a full-size cab, be less than nine years old and have under 300,000 miles on it.
On April 2, the city pulled every cab off the street after all of them failed inspection. Kincaid said those that took the longest to get back in service had rust problems.
The cabs are operated by two companies - Queen City Taxi, owned by Rudy Masat, and Manchester Taxi, owned by Kathleen Peters and managed by Bill Fellows.
