TheCab's Howard Higa sets his sights beyond his fleet of taxis.
In the first part of his life, Howard Higa, President and CEO of TheCab, said making money and earning a good living for his family were his driving force. now, at nearly 70, Higa thinks the chance to give back by creating opportunities for his largely immigrant workforce provides the prime motivation for continuing to run Hawai'i's largest taxi company long after many of his peers have retired. Higa poses with a few company “toys.†Howard Higa with his family (back L-R) Mary Higa, Shannon Higa, Rhonda Fauria- Higa and Lisa Higa; (front L-R) Kiki Fauria, Camryn Fauria, Riley Fauria and Caleb Fauria (photo courtesy Howard Higa). "When i acquired the company, it was defunct," Higa says. "Basically, i had loaned someone money and he couldn't pay the debt so he threw the keys on my desk. i said, 'you are kidding me,' and for a year, i didn't do anything, i just let the company get worse and worse." However, eventually genetics kicked in and Higa, who comes from a long line of men who couldn't walk away from a business challenge, came out of semi-retirement to turn TheCab around.

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."
