Hail! Hail!

New, 6 comments

The City Council today gave their longwinded stamp of approval to a pilot program that will allow citizens to hail a taxi in Hollywood and Downtown LA. The program will establish protocols for taxis to load and unload passengers in previously restricted "no parking" zones (not including bus zones). If the program is a success (measured how, we're not sure), the city's 2,300 cabs will be able to pick up people flailing their arms on the street. The program is expected to start a week after the Mayor and Council give their approval. [Curbed Staff]
