The companies are flouting a rule that says they can't drive customers to and from the airport, says Howard Higa of The Cab.
Howard Higa, president of The Cab taxi company, said Wednesday he has had enough of Hawaii politicians dillydallying when it comes to the regulation of app-based ride-hailing companies Lyft and Uber. He was testifying at a Honolulu City Council Budget Committee meeting in favor of a bill that he said would place traditional taxi companies on an even playing field with the newcomers. Higa accused state and city leaders of taking far too long to establish regulations for the ride-hailing companies, which he said establish their own vocabulary to circumvent the law. Howard Higa The Cab. 13 july 2015. photograph Cory Lum/Civil Beat Howard Higa, president of Hawaii-based The Cab, wants more regulation of companies such as Lyft and Uber. Higa suggested the latest City Council bill be altered to ban the companies' surge-pricing practice, which increases ride fees according to demand - he called it "gouging. At the other end of the price spectrum, he also complained about free ride offers, which he said taxi companies can't afford to compete with. Despite the fact the ride-hailing companies were mandated by the state Department of Transportation to stop driving customers to and from the airport in July 2014, Higa said, the practice continues. "It's total mockery on the system," he said.

In a follow up story to the assaults, KHON2 spoke with Howard Higa, president of The Cab, a taxi company that has over 800 drivers, and asked what requirements are necessary to work as a driver for the company.
He responded that they needed a taxi license, insurance and a two year background check. But Higa added that he would like to see this changed, "In my opinion, there are certain crimes or certain things that drivers have done in the past that should never be forgiven," Higa said, "and I believe that the background checks should go further back … They should be five, maybe even 10 years."

"We have taken copies of this sketch and distributed it among our 600 drivers," said Howard Higa, president of "The Cab" company.In July, three taxi drivers were robbed.Two were working for "The Cab" company."Since then, we have contacted several security companies that offer car cameras, whether video or picture cameras, so we're evaluating several systems like that," Higa said."The Cab" is also considering putting protective shields in all its cars."We're going to cooperate 100 percent with HPD to see if we can get this person off the streets and make hawaii a safer place," Higa said.

"It's devastating, it's frustrating and I'm almost speechless," said The CAB president Howard Higa. "We've always prided ourselves with integrity, honesty, safety for the consumer as well as for the driver," Higa said."As far as I'm concerned there's no excuse for this to happen," said Higa. Whatever the case, Higa said that had he known about Cohen's record, he probably never would have been working for the company.
