• Petitioned D.C. Council and the D.C. Taxicab Commission

This petition was delivered to:

D.C. Council and the D.C. Taxicab Commission
Council of the District of Columbia
D.C. Taxicab Commission
Mayor of the District of Columbia
The Honorable Vincent C. Gray

Make "Red" the standard color for Taxicabs in Washington, D.C.

      Bryan Martin Firvida

      Washington, DC

If the D.C. Taxicab Commission and the D.C. Council are going to move forward to mandate a single color for taxicabs in Washington, D.C., RED should be the color.

Red has already become the color of choice for Washington, D.C.'s public transportation network, as the Circulator, Capital Bikeshare, and even new Metrobuses all sport very nice Red color schemes. Not only that, Red is the color of the stars in the District of Columbia's flag.

      It is time to upgrade our city's cab system to the modern world. Too often we are concerned about the inconvenience this places on drivers and not the conveniences that will be enjoyed by its customers.

      Red is becoming a defining color for DC. Our flag is red and our Capital Bikeshare bikes are red. Make the cabs red too!!!

      We should unify DC's transit branding with the distinctive red of Circulator and CaBi.

      There are numerous white cars and they'll look really dirty too. DC's red should be the distinctive read of Circulator and CaBi.

      I'd prefer taxis remain heterogeneous, but if they have to all be the same color, branding that matches Circulator and CaBi makes sense.
