TORONTO, ON, May 17, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- "Recurring incidents with unlicensed airport taxis should prompt travelers in and out of Toronto Pearson International Airport to be mindful when making on-the-spot selections", says Ciro Vitolo, General Manager of Airline Limousine.
Despite ongoing police efforts, recurring incidents that involve unlicensed taxi drivers, also known as "scoopers", continue to cause problems for passengers. Reports of stolen baggage, payment scams, and the increased liability associated with uninsured vehicles, are positioned as high risks.
"As a company who has provided passengers with safe and reliable services for over seven decades, we understand the frustration caused by these experiences."
CTV News released a story last month that efforts by Peel Regional Police are being made in an attempt to remove scoopers from Toronto Pearson International Airport. In one incident a passenger reported that a taxi driver unlawfully held her baggage to force her to pay extra. Peel Police Const. Bally Saini shared with reporters that "the big thing is that when you are getting into an unlicensed taxi, you are putting yourself at risk."
"We strongly recommended that travelers are mindful of the risks associated with choosing unlicensed taxi drivers. To ensure you have a safe and pleasant travel experience, planning ahead and opting for high-level services provided by well-established companies is important. If you prefer to make on-the-spot choices, you can approach an information desk or a commissioner on the arrival platform to direct you. Airline Limousine has members of our fleet standing by at all times to safely assist you to your destination."
