S.A. Cabbies Kick Off Protest Series

Cab drivers protest outside the San Antonio City Council Chambers Thursday morning.

“We’re calling for fairness,” National Cab owner Robert Gonzales told KTSA News. He was referring to the mandatory FBI Background Check cab drivers go through, but rideshare drivers don’t have to.

“The council members and the mayor, that supported an optional sham of a background check for Uber and Lyft, we’re asking them to support mandatory background checks, completely, for these operators,” he said.

Gonzales claims there have been a number of incidents or background issues in Houston, involving Uber drivers.

“In this age, especially of terrorism, we feel that our council, that supposedly represents our citizens, should be more responsible,” he said.
