ST. THOMAS - Senators faced a room full of taxi drivers in matching blue shirts Wednesday as the legislators made their decisions on two taxi-related bills - both of which passed.
Bill No. 29-0255 would allow for anyone with a valid V.I. drivers license to drive a taxi, as long as the automobile is "off duty" and the driver does not solicit passengers.
Bill No. 29-0256 would allow people with a valid Class C Virgin Islands drivers license - the type of license taxi drivers are required to have - to drive a vehicle for hire, regardless whether they are the ones to whom the medallion is issued.
