D.C. Residents To Choose Color Scheme For Cabs

WASHINGTON (AP) — Taxicabs in the nation’s capital will soon sport a uniform color scheme, and residents will get to choose what colors they like best.

District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray will roll out four of the possible color schemes on Monday at Verizon Center.

The four cabs will remain on display there, and residents will be able to vote for their favorite. They’ll also be able to vote on the D.C. Taxicab Commission’s website, where other color options will also be displayed.

Cabs in the district currently run the gamut, color-wise. The uniform scheme was part of a broad package of reforms approved this year. Credit card readers and GPS devices will also be required in all cabs.
