Cab drivers wait in the taxi holding lot at DIA to get their turn for a fare at the airport Monday morning March 12, 2007. Supporters of a push to relax taxi regulations in Denver say the move will lower prices, increase service and open up a largely closed market to new drivers and entrepreuers. Opponents argue that just the opposite will happen: A flood of new cabs will enter the market, leading to price gouging at peak times and an overall erosion in service, as drivers will be able to pick and choose who they pick up. So who's right? Neither...and both, according to one of the most comprehensive studies of cab regulations in years. The study - conducted by transportation consultant Bruce Schaller - concludes that there are no clear-cut regulatory models that wll work for every cab system. Rather, each community must adopt policies based on its own needs. . (PHOTO/ DENNIS SCHROEDER/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) **
