NYC Taxi App Rules Up for Vote

Will the city allow innovation to improve the system?


There's about to be a vote in New York that will decide on a stack of rules that, if passed into law, would allow Taxi apps to work with NYC Taxi Cabs across the board – but as this market has many, many interests at hand, it's not going to be easy one way or another. As NYC Taxi apps appears in the digital landscape for both iOS (on the iPhone) and Android, New York City's Taxi and Limousine Commission had to decide whether or not they'd be legal – you cant just jump into a cab with a new technology all across the city, after all.
