Help Select the New Taxi Color Scheme
The District hopes to create a uniform color scheme for DC's taxis.
Mayor Vincent C. Gray and DC Taxicab Commission are seeking public input on four options for the proposed standardized uniform color scheme for the D.C. taxicab industry.
"We intend for DC to establish an identity and image that will set a new standard for public vehicles for hire and will help improve enforcement to prevent illegal vehicle service by creating a more recognizable D.C. taxicab," said Gray in a press release.
Four vehicles wrapped in proposed color schemes are on display at the Verizon Center through Jan. 7 and will later be available at Union Station and then at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center during the annual Washington Auto Show.
The color combinations on display are:
- Red and white (with a yellow stripe)
- Green and yellow
- White and yellow (with green stripe)
- Red and black with white accent
Additional color schemes will be posted
Additional proposed color schemes will be posted to the DCTC website. The DCTC expects final color recommendations by the spring of 2013.
Residents can vote on Twitter by using the hashtag #votedctaxi. Additionally there will be public hearings to allow public input on the color schemes.
