I opened the New York Times today, and enjoyed reading an article about taxis. As you may know, I drive a cab at the end of the my long-running Off-Broadway comedy show Ted Greenberg’s The Complete Performer. That’s right. One lucky audience group is randomly selected at the end of my show. And, I drive them anywhere in New York City — home, to a bar, wherever.
I’ve been a fan of yellow taxis since I was a youngster. They are quintessential New York. Now comes word that SheTaxis will launch in New York City next week. You will be able to order a female-driven cab through an app. Passengers must also be women. This is a great idea, offering what I’m sure some think is a much needed service.
The article points out that only 5% of cabbies are women, and that this new service offers additional opportunities for them. That’s great. Entrepreneurial spirit. What could be more New York than that?
