Taxi drivers strive to launch own cab company

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Dozens of Nashville taxi drivers hope to launch their own cab company Tuesday.

The Metro transportation and Licensing Commission is expected to review a plan for "Volunteer Taxi."

If approved, "Volunteer Taxi" would be Nashville's first driver-owned taxi service.

Many drivers say they are overworked and underpaid with their current companies.

A "Volunteer Taxi" spokesman said the company has reached out to council members, commissioners and the Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau.
