Nashville approves 110 added taxis, 3 companies

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Hailing a taxi in Nashville is about to get easier.

The commission that regulates the city cab industry voted Thursday to add 110 additional vehicles to the streets.

The transportation licensing commission approved three new taxi companies, and The Tennessean reported that 1 of them is formed by immigrants from Somalia.

As the new Music City Center convention venue prepares to open in May, the taxi fleet will have grown from 645 permitted vehicles to 755.

The newly approved cabs are required to begin operating within 120 days.
