Taxi licensing, whether via medallions or other permits, goes beyond Boston. Were the cost of doing business as a Boston cabbie linked to the modest $750 fee plus the other requirements, there would b more »

For years, many have argued that a regional license for cabs would make more sense. Our cities and towns are so small that crossing into another municipality is almost a given. What Uber and Lyft are more »

In most cities, the taxicab business has turned into a leasing and dispatching operation. If you drive a cab but don't own the license (or medallion), before Uber, you had four ways to get fares legal more »

This car versus bicycle brouhaha has been underway from decades. Hostilities come in the form of deliberately opening car doors in cyclists' paths, needlessly honking, bird-flipping, and outright verb more »

Great work and very articulate speaker (on CNN). But all I could think about was how his parents would have reacted. Oy vey!

Thanks to the Globe team for doing this work. I certainly hope that these practices are fully investigated and remedied. The taxicab industry is frought with problems. For those that own the medallion more »

I am disappointed in the slant of the video presentation as it neglects to focus on the safety advances in the newer automobiles but instead talks about something like automatic seat and mirror adjust more »
