The Illinois Transportation Trade Association (ITTA) is here to serve as a consolidated voice for the taxi industry.  The taxi industry provides nearly 40,000 jobs and $30 million in tax revenue to the State of Illinois, all while following consumer protection laws.

With unregulated commercial rideshare providers like Uber and Lyft now engaging Chicago to claim a share of transportation services, there is a stronger need to protect our industry, drivers, and passengers from falling prey to the new start-up companies seeking financial gain over public safety.

For media requests, please contact ITTA Spokeswoman Mara Georges at (312) 726-8797.
