Specifications

Specifications include, but are not limited to:Airport Background. The City owns and operates Charlotte Douglas International Airport, which is managed by the Aviation Director. Pursuant to Sec. 4-2 of the Citys Code of Ordinances, the Airport has the authority to promulgate and enforce regulations of operations and conduct at the Airport. The Airport is a major international hub for American Airlines and is currently served by eight (8) major airlines and more than ten (10) regional carriers. Collectively, these airlines operate approximately over 700 daily departures. Taxi passenger traffic patterns are inconsistent throughout the day as aircraft depart and take off in banks. This affects taxi service as the ebb and flow of aircraft create an ebb and flow of passenger traffic. Of the Airports 44.9 million passengers served in 2015, approximately, 11.2 million were local passengers. Passengers can provide their own transportation, making use of multiple parking options at the Airport. There are over 26,000 public parking spaces at a cost starting at five dollars ($5.00) per day. The Airport offers curbside and business valet parking services. Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) provides public buses to and from the Airport. Pre-arranged vans and limousines are also available to serve Airport customers. The Airport is currently party to operating agreements under which three (3) taxi companies provide 157 permitted Taxis, operating a range of both Standard and Peak Taxis. Standard Taxis are permitted to enter the Airport under a Schedule Arrangement, while Peak Taxis are called in at points of high demand. It is proposed that this Schedule Arrangement be continued, and that a total of ten percent (10%) of the Airport Taxi fleet be designated as Peak Taxis. This represents an increase in the number of Standard Taxi permits issued by the Airport
