Dave Shaw President WFLA WFLA President Dave Shaw Oldsmar, Fla. — The West Florida Livery Association (WFLA) met May 26, its last Tuesday meeting before changing its meeting schedule to the third Wednesday of each month.

WFLA President Dave Shaw of Network Limousines welcomed all in attendance before updates were provided by Secretary Joe Russo of Primetime Limousines, Treasurer Gus Shahin of Luxury Transportation Limousine, Hillsborough County Public Transportation Commission (HCPTC) regarding the ongoing TNC battle, and officers discussing the NLA, Florida Limousine Association, and Greater Orlando Limousine Association. Tom Smith of Click-A-Ride, an app that connects the riding public only with properly licensed and insured transportation companies, also spoke at the meeting.

As the WFLA has been working closely with the HCPTC to better regulate TNC operations, the commission’s then-upcoming Rules & Policy Committee meeting and workshop was discussed, which WFLA members were encouraged to attend. The committee unifies both the taxicab and black-car sides of the ground transportation industry to properly identify, define, and regulate commercial vehicles.

The next meeting of the WFLA will be held June 17 at FlameStone American Grill.
