In the Matter of the Application of Craig Taxi to Operate as a Common Carrier for Hire

Decision Granting Start-up Taxi Application Colorado PUC


In this case before the Colorado Public Utilities Commission, I represented a start up taxicab company named Craig Taxi seeking a license to operate in Colorado. My client's application to operate a taxi as a start-up company was opposed by two existing taxi operators in the area. I was retained to handle litigation of the application. Prior to the two day bench trial, my client reached a stipulation with one of the two intervening taxi companies, leaving only one company in opposition at the time of trial. The arguments in opposition of Craig Taxi's application focused on insufficient demand for a second local taxi company in the area. On April 12, 2011, the administrative law judge issued the (recommended) decision granting Craig Taxi a license over the objection of the existing cab company. The decision, which later became the final decision by operation of law, specifically found that Craig Taxi demonstrated that the existing taxi service was substantially inadequate and that the community would benefit from the additional service.
