Taxi problems...the never ending story of Capital District taxi discontent. Just signed up for "Uber" intending to use it when visiting my son in LA. Not available in the Cap. Distr. yet unless according to their website enough people sign up. Can't get any worse then the cab service that we have and is a great resource for everyone to use and make some money as a driver!
Let's UBER !

They should turn Maiden Lane into a stepped pedestrian street, like they have all over Europe. We don't need to reinvent the wheel, they do steep small streets pretty well across the pond, let's look for some precedents... Human scaled lighting is critical too, that goes for the whole city. And we don't need paint on the road, just signage perpendicular to the flow of traffic at the bridge entrance. I also echo the call for basic, ongoing maintenance to our current infrastructure. How about some weed removal in sidewalks, etc?
