City officials are looking into amending regulations for Iowa City taxicabs.

City staff and taxi companies met on Oct. 31 to discuss possible changes, and officials hope to proceed with several changes. These changes would include requiring a distinctive color scheme per taxi company, restricting new companies to starting June 1 of each year, and requiring the location of the dispatch office to be within the Iowa City or Coralville city limits. The amendments would also require driver identification to be posted in the vehicle facing the passengers.

The Iowa City city councilors will vote on the first consideration of this ordinance at their next meeting, Tuesday.
