The Western Washington Taxicab Operators Association (WWTCOA) is a not-for-profit membership association that promotes fairness, justice, and transparency in Seattle's heavily-regulated taxi industry.

The WWTCOA represents nearly 500 owners and drivers from Yellow Cab, Farwest, and Orange Cab, and it has a democratically-elected Leadership Council that consists of 15 members.

The WWTCOA works closely with Teamsters Local 117 to ensure that taxis have the resources they need so that they can speak with a unified voice and build a better life for themselves and their families.
