Now and in the future
« on: December 07, 2017, 11:12:41 AM »
By saying “now and in the future” in the state law. the legislation enabling exclusive rights to taxis , lawmakers must’ve taken into account the fact that new technologies of street hailing would be included in the exclusive. Otherwise they never would have said the FUTURE.
The future obviously includes new technologies or other methods of street hailing.

   32  of  New  York wherein HAIL license holders are prohibited from accepting
   33  such passengers. All vehicles licensed by the TLC as taxicabs  shall  be
   34  permitted to pick up passengers via street hail from any location within
   35  the  city  of New York unless the pick-up of passengers is prohibited by
   36  law. No driver of any for-hire vehicle shall accept a  passenger  within
   37  the  city  of  New  York by means other than pre-arrangement with a base
   38  unless said driver is operating either a (i) taxicab licensed by the TLC
   39  with a medallion affixed thereto, or (ii) a vehicle with  a  valid  HAIL
   40  license  and said passenger is hailing the vehicle from a location where
