Yellow Checker Cab cuts hours, citing lack of workers

CHAMPAIGN — A local taxi company has cut its hours of operation, citing a shortage of employees.

Yellow Checker Cab will no longer run taxis on weekends or between the hours of midnight and 5 a.m., owner Redith Ewing said Wednesday.

"We have shut down for Saturday and Sunday and will be running shorter hours due to not having enough drivers and dispatchers," Ewing said. "Some of our customers are in a panic thinking we are closing, and that is not the case."

The company previously operated 24 hours a day.
