Beck Taxi called out on Twitter after line of cabs caught parking in bike lane

A Toronto taxi company is under fire after photos were posted on social media showing several cabs parked in a downtown bike lane on Friday night.

Photos were tweeted of the Beck Taxi vehicles parked in the segregated bike lanes at Richmond Street West, near Bay Street.

Marcella Jones tweeted to the company, as well as Toronto mayor John Tory, that the practice “shows zero regard for cycling safety.”

Kristine Hubbard, Beck Taxi’s operations manager, responded on Twitter, saying she agreed with Jones and that the incident was “Dangerous and embarrassing.”

Hubbard also placed some of the blame at the feet of the city, saying that while more taxi licenses are being issued, there are no more legal spots being created.
