Make it legal to hail non-yellow taxis?

From TLC:

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 the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island.

The City wants to hear from residents 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 let us know what you think.

You can hail a black car in any boro right now. No meter so you have to negotiate the price and it helps if you are bi-ligual.

Just another excuse to segregate the outer boroughs from Manhattan.

Its easy to get a black cab by just hailing it.
