Thread: New York Taxi

    Default New York Taxi

    A quizz for tourists: how many taxis can you count in the pictures below? A quizz for New Yorkers: how many are available?


    Traffic jam on Columbus Circle.





    A herd of taxis on Eighth Avenue at 42nd Street.




    Howard and Edward Milstein are building the 850,000-square-foot building, 11 Times Square, which will combine office space, street-level stores and possibly apartments on a parking lot at the southeast corner of 42nd Street and Eighth Avenue. New York Times Tower will replace the white 3-story building on 41st Street. 17 February 2003.





    Taxi's available. Thomas Struth's Video Portraits on the NBC Astrovision by Panasonic in Times Square.

    DRIVE TO OUTFIT TECHNO TAXIS


    By CLEMENTE LISI
    July 2, 2004

    The city has started the process of placing "technological enhancements" inside yellow cabs by asking companies to submit ideas on how best to use the instruments, The Post has learned.

    The Taxi and Limousine Commission has put out a "request for information" as a way of soliciting feedback from companies and gauging the options available to the agency.

    "This starts the process between us and the various industries," said TLC Commissioner Matthew Daus. "We hope this will spark interest and ideas that will help us."

    The enhancements that would go in each cab include Global Positioning Systems, credit/debit-card machines, text-messaging abilities and electronic maps in the back seat so passengers can track their location.

    The TLC approved a 26 percent fare hike in March that included providing riders with technological perks by November 2005.

    The purpose of the request is to solicit "feedback about different service-improvement options," with the goal of establishing a "pool of vendors."

    A committee has been established to review the various plans the TLC will eventually have to approve.

    "We're hopeful some great ideas will come out from this process," Daus said.

    An electronic map is a super idea! :P Those maps they have in the back are useful but sometimes at night when is dark and trying to talk to the driver to turn the back laght on sometimes is a comunication challange.

    The new electronic maps should also include maps of all the other boroughs as well. That is important.

    Some useful information could be found on

    New York Taxi & Limousine Commission website:

    http://www.nyc.gov/html/tlc/html/pas...ger_info.shtml
    http://www.nyc.gov/html/tlc/html/pas...faq_pass.shtml

    For example, I learned that cab drivers are not allowed to use cell phones! My experience was that they are always talking to someone.
