When the ‘taxi driver’ in your corner is a taxi driver

The taxi industry is changing rapidly, and the drivers who have stuck around to provide a service for decades are taking a pay cut.

But as the city of Portland, Oregon, becomes a hotbed for Uber, the drivers are also struggling.

In an exclusive interview, CBC News examines the shift to the ride-sharing service and what it means for the taxi industry.

It’s the latest in a series of stories by The Globe and Mail’s reporters about the taxi drivers and the people who use them.

The taxi driver’s story The story of the cab driver is the story of a taxi, and its journey is one of hope and hardship.

“It’s really an important part of our society,” says taxi driver Paul Vau.

“I’m an older guy who’s in the middle of a career crisis.

When I first started driving in Portland, I was like, ‘OK, I’m going to get out of here.

I’m gonna get a good job, and I’m not going to have to live on the streets.'”

“I had a bad experience, and then I had a really bad experience,” he adds.

“And the reason I’m talking to you today is because I’m about to have another bad experience.”

Vau says he is the only taxi driver in the city, and that he has a reputation for being rude to the public.

“People would say, ‘What’s he doing here?’

And I would be like, I don’t know, I’ve never been asked that question,” he says.

“So I don, like, try to avoid that kind of thing.

But I have been doing it for a long time, and people get annoyed.”

In addition to the reputation he has built, Vau is also the person most likely to get into trouble with the city.

“They are going to go after you,” he explains.

“But you are a part of this community and that is really what I care about.

That’s why I’m here.”

Vou has a hard time finding a job, despite being the only driver.

“You know, it’s really tough to find a job,” he admits.

“When I get to the office, I see that they are already calling me up and telling me, ‘You are not doing well.

You are not getting any new business,'” he says, referring to the city’s Taxi Commission.

“The city is not a good place for people to be starting a business.”

Uber drivers face a new reality While the cab industry has undergone a major shift, taxi drivers are still facing a new challenge: The growing number of Uber cars, and their ability to charge higher fares, have made it more difficult for the drivers to survive.

“In my city, we have a lot of people driving for Uber.

So it’s hard for us to be in the business,” says Vau, who currently works at the Port of Portland.

“We are trying to get more and more drivers in, so that the number of people in the industry will increase.”

Vaud, who is also a taxi cab driver, has noticed a trend.

“At this point, there is no taxi,” he tells The Globe.

“There are not any.”

Uber and the taxi union say they are taking the issue seriously.

“This is not an issue that we take lightly, and we will continue to work with our drivers and stakeholders to address this issue,” says Uber spokeswoman Jennifer Dyer.

“While there is a growing number to meet demand for Uber in Portland and throughout the region, we recognize that some drivers may not have a good relationship with the taxi commission, and may be unwilling to take the Uber drivers’ concerns seriously.”

The taxi drivers union says it is taking a hard look at the issue, and it has been working closely with its drivers.

“Our drivers are being held to higher standards than in previous years, and in order to do that we have to make certain changes,” said Dyer in an email to The Globe, explaining the union’s stance.

“With the rapid changes that are taking place in our industry, we know that we must be vigilant to keep the drivers and passengers safe.”

And as Uber moves into Portland, there are concerns that drivers will lose their jobs.

“For now, we’re just working with the cab commission to understand what the rules are and what they need to do to be compliant with the law,” says Dyer, “and we’ll be working with them to make sure that we get the necessary rules in place.”

“The taxi industry as a whole is going through a really tough time right now, because they are facing a lot more pressure than ever before,” says Peter Boulter, president of the Portland Taxi Association.

Boulters is a retired cab driver who has worked in the field for more than 30 years.

“My biggest concern right now is the drivers

Which taxis have you seen on the high mountain of Portland?

Uber’s Yellow Cab is the only taxi in the city, with drivers from the Seattle-based company already operating in Portland.

But there are others, including one with a name that could be the company’s, called Yellow Taxi.

The company is based in the state of Washington, and the company is listed on the Seattle Department of Transportation’s website.

The Yellow Cab app, which has been downloaded over 15 million times, allows drivers to hail their vehicles, and is available on iOS and Android.

The app also allows drivers from other cities to request rides.

REUTERS/Jason Redmond – RTX2W5D5YZ/Handout via Reuters The Portland Police Department said in a statement that it is aware of the Yellow Cab service, but the department has no plans to pursue the complaint.

Portland Police Chief Steve Novick said he would like to make a statement.

“I know this is a city where a lot of people come together to get to work and a lot more people get hurt in a lot less time than you’d think, but we also need to make sure that we are doing everything we can to protect the public safety,” he said.

The city has been struggling with a rising number of traffic crashes, including a spike in fatalities that has prompted some to question whether Uber’s surge pricing system, which charges drivers for more trips, has contributed to the increase.

Police Chief Janice Rogers-Carr said that a number of officers had been sent to the area, and that the city was working to ensure safety.

“I have spoken to our officers and are aware that a vehicle that is involved in a collision, and if it is a yellow cab, that yellow cab will be subject to an immediate stop and we will be taking appropriate action to stop that vehicle,” she said.

Police said that they have been able to make contact with Yellow Cab drivers and had seen the company on its app, and would take any further action necessary.

As of Wednesday, the Portland Police had not issued a formal statement on the issue, but police had issued a statement on Twitter saying that Yellow Cab would have to file a formal complaint.

“Yellow Cab is not currently offering surge pricing in Portland, but is actively considering offering it as a way to help us maintain our service,” the police department said.

“Our focus at this time is on maintaining public safety and preventing collisions and injuries in our city.”

Yellow Cab and Uber have not responded to requests for comment.

Fake Taxi Video Reveals Portland Police Officer Trying to Steal a Taxi from a Taxi Cab

Linn County, Ore.

— A video posted by Portland Police Department on its official YouTube channel appears to show a Portland police officer trying to steal a taxi from a taxi cab while he is wearing a body camera.

In the video posted on Tuesday, the Portland Police officer can be seen walking toward a parked cab.

When the cab driver stops his cab and asks the officer if he can pay him for the trip, the officer responds, “yeah, sure.

You can call me back in a minute.”

The driver then asks the police officer why he has his camera on him.

“Well, I’m a cop and you’re not,” the officer replies.

“I don’t want to take a picture of you.

I want to keep it secret,” the driver continues.

“If I’m going to take the picture, then I’m not going to do it.”

When the officer asks the cabdriver if he would like to pay for the taxi, the cabman says, “yes.”

The video has garnered over 3.8 million views and 1.3 million shares on Facebook.

The video shows a cab driver with a body cam video of him standing behind a parked car and trying to take an Uber, a competitor to Lyft, out of a car park at Linn Park, which is in the city of Portland.

During the video, the driver is heard saying “I’m not afraid of you,” to which the other driver responds, “(You’re) going to be scared of me too.”

The other driver then said, “You’re going to have to get over here,” to the taxi driver.

The officer then replies, “Yeah, well, that’s not a bad idea.”

After the taxi was pulled over, the two officers then attempted to leave the scene.

One officer tried to take his camera off while the other attempted to pull it off.

The officers are seen then pushing the taxi cab with the driver’s license plate.

As the taxi drove away, the video ends with the officers saying, “I did it,” as the driver exits the car.
