N.Y. Taxi Smartphone Hail Program Said To Be Blocked

N.Y. Taxi Smartphone Hail Program Said To Be Blocked

Submitted by • May 3, 2013 www.informationweek.com

New York livery car groups won a bid to block a pilot program that would enable people to hail and pay for a ride in one of the city’s 13,000 yellow taxis using location-based smartphone applications. The measure adopted by the New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission in December would run for 12 months and exempt areas such as airports that have provisions for taxi lines. While all licensed city cab drivers would be eligible, their participation would be optional.
