Part of living uptown and in the outer boroughs is the reality that yellow cabs aren’t always your first option when it comes to getting around. You may have heard about the Mayor’s proposal to establish a new category of livery cars that can make on-street pickups outside of Manhattan just like yellow cabs do. It will give many New Yorkers another safe, reliable and convenient option for getting around. The program aims to improve taxi availability while bringing yellow-taxi-like amenities (e.g., metered fares, credit/debit card payment, easier-to-spot cabs) to Harlem and the outer boroughs.
The City wants to hear from residents like you about your experiences with taxis and car services and has a developed a brief online survey where your voice can be heard. Click Here to give your two cents.
