Cab drivers in Shreveport will be trained in providing good public relations for the city.
KTBS reports tourism officials want them to help improve visitors' first impressions of Shreveport.
A new city ordinance requires cabbies to take a free two-hour course on how to talk up restaurants and events.
Some cab drivers aren't too enthusiastic about the training. They say they already try to be helpful to visitors so they'll get good tips.
