• Electric-Taxi Experiment Asks if City’s Cabbies Can Spare the Time to Plug In

    taxi-articleLarge-v2 The taxis are not entirely yellow. Their drivers are allowed to refuse certain fares. Even the smell is different, with no oil-rich odor greeting riders at the door.

  • Taxi Commission Says Credit Cards Help Drivers

    Ford_Escape_NYC_Taxi_hybrid_2-540x250 The average cabby works nine and a half hours a day.
