No, the taxi drivers are arguing they can be the only ones to drive people to their destination and charge them for the ride.
Not quite. In Detroit a church started running a free van to help people who couldn't afford a car. The free bus was shut down by the taxi commission. Taxi commissions, in general, are against anyone giving anyone else a ride who isn't a taxi driver.
Don't pick up hitchhikers. The Taxi commission will come after you.
