Reinventing the Taxi
April 6th, 2007

In honor of the 100th anniversary of the NYC taxi, the New York Auto Show features an exhibit on the future cabs called Taxi 07. It is a product of the Design Trust and features ideas to make taxis more accessible to people with disabilities, environmentally friendly, and in some cases, just more funky-looking.

Autoblog calls the exhibit “donktacular!” (We’re not sure if that is good or bad.)

HackShotsofNewYork offers some nice photos and asks of one boxy model: “Is this cab designed for Iraq or New York?”

Those that don’t like ogling automobiles can watch taxi-themed films like “Taxi Driver” and “Night on Earth” at the IFC Center. And the HungryCabbie blog is plugging a five minute documentary at the auto show called “Cabby Voices.”
