Nov 30, 2012 Cab Lights Made Simple in NYCPosted in BLOG, News, by GetTaxi team

In most cities, a lit cab means available. For New Yorkers, a more intricate system has been in place that is only understood by the locals. Between Jan 1 and April 30 that will all change.

On Thursday, November 29 the Taxi and Limousine Commission voted to remove the confusion and give roof lights a facelift. If a cab is available, the light will be on, if not, the light will be off.

TLC Commissioner David Yassky called the new plan “plain, common sense”.

But don’t worry; when a cab is off-duty, they will still be able to swoop you up if you are headed in their direction.

Let us know your feelings on this change.
