Henrico supervisors consider taxicab ordinance adjustments

Regional taxi board may dissolve in April
FEB. 25, 11:50 A.M. – Faced with the possible dissolution of the Capital Region Taxicab Advisory Board, officials from the four largest Metro Richmond localities are considering changes to their individual taxi ordinances to grant cab companies greater freedom from regulation, making it easier for them to compete with companies like Uber and Lyft.

In Henrico, the county's Board of Supervisors met Tuesday night to discuss potential changes to the county's ordinance, proposed by the Henrico Division of Police. Those changes would lessen regulatory issues for taxicab drivers – most notably by reducing the current yearly permit renewal process to just once every three years.

Cyclists have their say


On a chilly Wednesday evening in Innsbrook earlier this month, more than 30 concerned Henrico citizens crowded into the Capital Ale House’s game room. But games were of little concern Feb. 10 during the first of four "Bike Walk Talks" (informal happy hours), at which Bike Walk RVA officials listened to what county citizens had to say about alternative forms of travel in Henrico.

Attendees at the first event this month – many of whom identified as avid cyclists and walkers – shared their desire for Henrico to adopt a plan similar to the Bikeways and Trails Plan approved by the Chesterfield County Board of Supervisors in November. That 50-year plan calls for a 360-mile network of new bicycle pathways and trails, estimated at $360 million. Bike Walk RVA, a Sports Backers-sponsored bicycling and pedestrian advocacy group formed in 2012, presented the Chesterfield board with a list of more than 1,000 county residents’ signatures in support of the plan, which supervisors passed by a 3-2 vote.
