UPPER MARLBORO — The largest cab company in Prince George’s County is planning to appeal a new measure that will expand the number of taxis in the county.
The legislation will add about 400 permits to the county’s current 775 permits in October. Over the next five years, the bill will allow for an additional 375 permits.
Badi Nabely, owner of Silver Cab Co., says adding more drivers will hurt his business, which owns about one-fifth of the county’s permits. An attorney for the company says he is researching their appellate rights and plans to take action.
The measure won approval this month when the county council voted to overturn County Executive Jack Johnson’s veto of legislation. The council had initially approved the measure in July.
