RACINE — A local woman has started a new taxi cab company to try to ease what she perceives as a shortage of public transportation options.

On Tuesday, Christine Grube got final approvals from the city to open her home-based A-1 Safe Cab. She has one car on the road so far and another in waiting for when business picks up.

Grube didn't necessarily need a second job; her day job is packaging coordinator for Merz Aesthetics, 1340 Grandview Parkway in Yorkville.

However, she said: "From everyone I have talked to, there's not enough public transportation (in Racine)." She regularly sees people standing at a bus stop near her home and imagines they might prefer an affordable cab ride.
