Taxi of Today

New, 4 comments

The city can't legally require all medallion holders to purchase and drive the so-called Taxi of Tomorrow Nissan NV200, but that doesn't mean the vehicles are completely dead. The first two minivan-like rides hit the streets today, despite the ongoing legal battle. The city is appealing the court's decision, which said that the city "exceeded its authority" in requiring all cabbies to own and drive the new car. If you're one of the lucky ones that hails the first of the NV200s, feel free to send a report and photos to the tipline. [NYDN; previously]
