Have you ever been denied a cab ride in Austin?
After last week's deadly crash on Red River Street, there's been calls for more and better public transportation and taxi service.
But during special events like South by Southwest, it seems like more and more Austin taxis refuse to take riders for a variety of reasons. Carlton Thomas with the City of Austin’s Parking Enterprise says the most common reason is that "drivers are not interested in taking the short trips."
He should know, because all complaints about cab drivers come to his department.
