Pimp My Ride
Has anyone else heard of the latest season of “Pimp My Ride” happening right here in our very own little metropolis? Okay so Xzibit won’t be there, and I’m pretty sure you won’t see many 22’s, but the installation of touch screen LCD’s are the newest renovation to the ever so popular New York City taxi.
The LCD’s will tell passengers their location in the city (aka a map), where there are restaurants nearby, allow them to pick music, check if their flights are on time, and there will even be a credit card swiper for passengers to pay quickly and conveniently with credit.
They began installing the LCD’s on Monday, and are said to have 200 in place by the end of the year. By the end of 2007 every single NYC taxi should have the touchscreens. Now if only I could catch the cash cab and actually be able to afford to take a cab around town…
