The Daily News printed antenna's design for a clearer way of seeing that a cab is vacant. Which is a great idea, though Gothamist admits we think it's funny when out-of-towners try to hail off-duty cabs. TLC Commissioner Matthew Daus told the DN, "It's refreshing to get these viewpoints...The craziest idea I've heard so far was changing the color of the cab from yellow to something else. I'm happy with yellow."
Tonight is the "Taxi 07: Transforming and Icon" event, marking the 100th anniversary of the New York taxi. The Design Trust for Public Space have gathered together members of the city’s design community and tonight they discuss ideas for the redesign the yellow cab. The idea of a redesign was announced back in 2005.
