Training for taxi drivers starts Wednesday

To comply with new city requirements, taxi drivers will need to attend customer service training classes.

The two-hour classes begin Wednesday at Go Wichita Convention & Visitors Bureau, 515 S. Main, Suite 115. They are part of new requirements for drivers who want to obtain or renew their taxi license, according to a news release from the visitors bureau.

According to the release, the content of the class was developed after the city was asked to review taxi regulations. During the City Council's discussions on the issue, Go Wichita offered to conduct the training at no charge.

The classes will be held on the third Wednesday each month through April 2013 to accommodate all current drivers. After April, the class will be offered on a quarterly basis.
