Taxi news: New York City

From New York Daily News:

    Hail, no! The city's taxi commissioner dismissed a plan yesterday to place yellow cab stands in boroughs outside Manhattan, insisting drivers won't travel that far.

    "The demand is there, but the cabs won't go," Taxi and Limousine Commissioner Matthew Daus told the City Council.

    Council members are considering a bill that would set up 10 city-run yellow cab stands throughout the boroughs for a three-year pilot project.

    Passengers could line up at the stands to catch a cab, much as they do now at a handful of stands at the two Queens airports, the Port Authority's midtown bus terminal, Grand Central Terminal, Penn Station and in Flushing.
