New York City: A lab for Taxi Experiments

Everybody wins, could be the motto for the plan Mayor Michel Blommberg requested to the TLC (Taxi & Limousine Coomission) to experiment with taxi stands in  New York's city streets. The taxi "group rides" will start the pilot program this Friday February 26Th, 2010. The firms involved in the case studies were based in GPS collected data and the goal is to decrease traffic during peak hours, which means less toxic emissions, also taxi riders will save money, and more important for others,  like the taxi drivers, would be the translation for more money per group rides.
