East Lansing and Lansing Taxicabs Could Face New Regulations

Jamil Jabeer is a cab driver and owner of Jay’s Cab Company. He say’s it’s tough making a living as a cab driver, but now it might be even tougher with newly proposed regulations that city officials say will help those who use taxi services. The new regulations call for meters in cabs, something that isn’t currently regulated. Up to now, drivers usually charge a flat fee. “Minimum charge is $6 dollars for each person,” Jabeer said.
