Charlotte considers letting more taxi firms serve airport in wake of pay-to-play allegations

More cab companies could be allowed to pick up passengers at Charlotte Douglas International Airport, in the wake of allegations that a pay-to-play scheme tied to former Mayor Patrick Cannon undermined the selection process. Interim Aviation Director Brent Cagle said Tuesday that the airport needs to decide whether to renew the contract in about three weeks. And while he said he believes the process to select the cab companies was fair, Cagle said the airport needs to avoid any appearance of impropriety.
