NEW YORK — People don’t have to use their hands to hail New York City cabs anymore — now there’s an app for that.
Taxi and Limousine Commissioner David Yassky said Friday that Uber Technologies Inc. has been selected to make e-hailing services available to people looking for cabs. He says Uber will facilitate the [...]

Seems evidently clear that this wave is in full swing and that some investors are getting the message. There is tremendous potential in configuring the right ride share platforms and preparing for the growth in this market as populations increase, environmental issues are taken more seriously and the advent of the mobile web preps our [...]
As Bloomberg and the TLC forge ahead with their plans to regulate the outer borough car service industry, particularly with regards to who is able to legally pick up street hails, a new taxi color has emerged.
