Taxi Companies Prepare for a Busy Night

Posted: Updated:

New Year's Eve is the busiest night of the year for taxi cab drivers.

At Taxi 9000, employees are getting ready for the busy holiday.
Mechanics are repairing taxis, and managers are putting the final touches on the schedule.
Twenty drivers are scheduled to handle the New Year's rush.
But one manager says it's going to be hectic, no matter how much they plan ahead.

"It's one of those deals where no matter how many you put on it's never enough. You can go from a typical Friday and Saturday night, probably 50 or 60 rides between the magic time of 11:45 p.m.- 1 a.m. or 11:30 p.m.- 12:30 a.m.,  you can double that. It can go to 100 rides in that same time frame," says Randy Remmick, Taxi 9000.

Remmick says they've been much busier since the state's DUI laws changed.
