Changes possible for airport taxis

The Virgin Islands Port Authority is on record endorsing an end to the exclusive taxi franchise for the V.I. Taxi Association
at Cyril King airport.  Their decision was unanimous, citing a
controlling regulation by the Federal Aviation Administration which
prohibits such awards.  Darlin Brin, executive director of the Port Authority, told the Virgin Islands Daily News
he would consider opening up for bid the rights to pick up passengers.
The Taxi Association’s control of taxi services at the Airport has been
contentious, and the subject of several lawsuits by tourism groups.
