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, 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."
