Cash Cab
« on: December 05, 2017, 04:53:55 PM »
Just watched the return of Cash cab on The Discovery Channel. I wonder what the story is on why they revived this great show and great promotion for the Yellow Industry? They should have a few of these taxis out there. That would get a lot of attention!

Here is a photo of myself and Ben Baily the host of the show. This photo was taken in about 2008 at a TLC event I was invited to:

I heard the host on a radio show this morning and he was talking about how he has to renew his hack license. Someone on the show then said to him "why don't you just do Cash Uber and then you don't need the license or medallion." He responded that then he could drive a nicer car too. Just goes to show the clear mindset that Uber is a yellow cab without the same hassle requirements.

They also asked him if they would ever do the show in another city and he said that no other city really has the same street hail market like New York. All the more reason why Manhattan doesn't need Uber.
