Good news

I had missed the boat, but it is true that NY has legalized it's gypsy acabs. From what I understand from a chat with a a driver, the legalized drivers can only pick up fares outside mid-town Manhattan, but they can drop off fares anywhere. My one trip (from participating on a panel at CCNY to my hotel in mid-town) with Harlem Car & Limousine was a flat fare. I have yet to find out more, but I like the demonstration effect. This is great ammunition for advocates of legalization in other cities. Will it spread? Stranger things have happened.
