Some key messages that the drivers would like to express include:
- Uber-X, Lyft and SideCar are unlicensed taxicabs and steal fares.
- Taxi parking has been taken away from the Cal Train station leaving passengers with no walk-up services. Meanwhile, Uber, Lyft and the others are free to park there.
- Because parking is a major concern in Palo Alto, taxicabs should be utilized to help fix this problem. The city should not discourage people from using public transportation by making it harder to get a taxi.
- The City of Palo Alto has lacked enforcement of illegal taxicabs operating within their city limits.
