The taxi cartels reach is far and making life worse for users of San Francisco Airport, CBS Local San Francisco reports:
In the past month, San Francisco International Airport officials have been citing and arresting drivers from mobile-app enabled rideshare companies that pick up and drop off passengers, an airport spokesman said.
Airport spokesman Doug Yakel said there have been seven citizen arrests issued to "various offenders" since July 10.
The airport had issued cease and desist letters to several rideshare companies, including Lyft, Sidecar and Uber, in April…..
Yakel said the companies are not permitted to offer their services at SFO and they are now being arrested for unlawful trespassing.
The story goes on to report about how taxi cartel members are begging for more concerted city action to put their potential competitors out of business.
I blogged about L.A.'s so-far feckless alleged "crackdown" on the helpful service providers last week.
