The following message was sent to me by Green Cab's Mark Gruberg regarding the SFMTA's removal of electronic waybills from discussion for the upcoming May 10th, May 11th, and May 16th town hall meetings. In an email dated May 7th, 2011, Gruberg wrote to me...
I e-mailed Christiane Hayashi to ask why electronic waybills had been removed from the agenda of the upcoming Town Hall meetings. She replied that a meter increase and credit card fees would be taken up at the MTA's May 17 Board meeting, but a discussion of electronic waybills had been postponed to a later time.
Therefore, according to Deputy Director of SFMTA Taxi Services Division Christiane Hayashi, public discussions in the upcoming town hall meetings are in preparation for the MTA Board's May 17th meeting on meter increase and credit card fees. Discussions for electronic waybills are expected to resume after the Board's May 17th meeting, but no date has been announced yet.
