Comment posted New NYC Taxi: Nissan Cab Unveiled by First Prius Cabbie.
I am sick of hearing about credit card complaints. It has helped us so much. We are a service business and should jump at the chance to offer a service passengers need. Try waiting for a cash machine now. As for the cab of the future it is a joke. I dont even think it is legal. I believe the law says you must have a choice. Not 100% sure.

- If I buy a Prius in Sept. 2013 does that mean I have to get rid of it by Oct 2018? That is only 5 years. I get 7 now. The Prius without a partition is the most comfortable ride there is. Lots of leg room and easy for seniors to get in and out because it is low to the ground. Seniors will have trouble with the new cab of the future. But they will be able to charge their cell phone. I dont know how riders survived all these years without a cell charge. First we all had to have hybrids now no one can. Time to sell if I can. Any Buyers?

B Desai turns against her own drivers by backing the Mayors outer boro plan and 2000 more medallions which will cost lease drivers all of the raise plus. Why did she do it? All because the mayor and yassky gave her some attention. People will do anything to look good. Kiss your raise goodbye if Desai helps the mayor by adding 2000 more cabs and countless outer boro cabs. Why is she for this?

First everyone had to have a hybrid now no one can. I think the law is you have to be given a choice of more than one to buy but I am not sure. Why doesnt Bloomberg try incentives instead of dictating and being a tyrant. Bloomberg will have better luck with incentives. And the city should stop using the cab industry as a cash cow. That is not what it is for. It is for drivers to earn a living. How much is this cab of tomorrow?

What is wrong with a hybrid with no partition? Cameras are a great idea. If a bandit knows his photo is being taken and the driver has less cash (c cards) ….thats a good way to be safe and plenty of room for all. I cant wait for the glass sun roof to start cracking. Probably thousands will be spent by owners of these see thru glass roof cabs.

Don’t forget if this were a good paying job you would not have it. Who do you think the bosses would hire if they had a choice; Americans or Native New Yorkers? Thats right you would be out like you were years ago. So be happy with what you have and stop complaining about a passenger using a card and go the route they want and maybe you will make a few more $. And try to save gas. No need to race to a red light. Im just trying to give good advice to the dummies that don’t understand what a service business is. Most of you know this. This advice is not for you. A tip is an incentive to give good service,it is not a given.
- Taxis Lose Their ‘AXI’
Youre correct Tony Fox it is mandated. But the expense is worth it when you compare the injuries and death in one case I know of. A few years ago a woman was killed when her head hit the partition on E 42 St at a slow speed accident. The cab jumped the curb and hit a building. A passenger (plastic surgeon) told me half the facial injuries in his waiting room were caused by the partition. The cost is not prohibitive and not that much more than a partition. Disappointed is right too about the two totals. Happens to me all the time. I wish Yassky would read this.
