NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — City officials announced Tuesday that more than 1,000 Boro Taxis are on the streets of New York just three and a half months into operation.
As WCBS 880’s Rich Lamb reported, the new apple green taxis have already racked up nearly 300,000 rides.
The Boro Taxis are allowed to make street pickups anywhere outside the Manhattan Business District with the exception of John F. Kennedy and LaGuardia airports. The goal has been to provide legal, safe and reliable service to those in upper Manhattan and the other four boroughs. The cabs can drop passengers off anywhere in the city.
