Abstract

"City" piece on charges of lax rule enforcement, unresponsive management and favoritism that are being thrown at the Portland International Jetport's ground managers by limousine drivers. APCOA, a Chicago-based company already in charge of jetport parking, was hired by the city of Portland in August 2000 to manage its ground transportation, including taxis, limousines and shuttle buses. Since APCOA took over, the number of complaints against drivers has dropped substantially. But while city and airport officials feel APCOA is meeting the terms of its $100,000 annual contract, there is dissension among the drivers, especially the limousine drivers, who say they can provide long-distance service cheaper than taxis, but seldom get referrals from APCOA.
