No taxi service in Oromocto

The only remaining cab company in Oromocto is no longer operating.

Diamond Taxi owner, Rob Pethick tells the Daily Gleaner he shut down the town's only taxi service last Friday.
Diamond had 8 of the 18 licences issued by the town, but only 5 cars were on the road.
The other 10 licences were owned by the defunct Town Taxi.

Mayor, Bob Powell says it caught him off guard.

Meanwhile, Pethick says it may not be that long before cabs on running on the streets around Oromocto again.
He says he's currently in negotiations with a taxi operator in Fredericton.

Pethick tells the Gleaner he shut down because of a surprise tax bill.
