The insignias will have to be black as opposed to the recognizable orange, Linton wrote Thursday in a letter to Roy Spooner, Yellow Cab’s general manager. Still, it’s a quasi-victory for the company.
Spooner had initially bid to place the orange insignia on the rear passenger side of his 550 vehicles. But the commission staff rejected that plan — both the insignia color and the insignia itself — late last month, arguing it “compromises the uniformity of the city’s color scheme” and “could distract a passenger from focusing on the primary identifier of the vehicle.”
Spooner said he will not appeal Linton’s decision to the full commission.
