Taxi company ticketed

In December, Vail Luxury Limos was fined $550 for failing to register with the commission. The company was fined again, Jan. 5, this time for $1,100 for operating without a charter order, said Terry Bote, spokesman for the Public Utilities Commission.

A response from the limousine service is pending, Bote said.

In December, Airlink Shuttle was fined $400 for operating without authority.

Taxi companies must register with the Public Utilities Commission. The rules governing limousine companies require them to operate at the airport only on a charter basis, not as a taxi operation, Bote said.

Bote said his organization usually has a handful of complaints each year from ground transportation companies operating at the Eagle County facility.
