New transportation pilot to launch soon in Wards 4, 7, and 8

The Department of For-Hire Vehicles (DFHV) will launch the Neighborhood Ride Service By Taxis (NRS) ― to provide more transportation options in the traditionally underserved Wards 4, 7, and 8 ― by September 30.   Cabs (8-seat shuttles) will travel a fixed route in each ward.   Passengers can get on and off anywhere along the route; the cost is $5 and payment can be made with cash or credit card.

DFHV wants feedback from the public on the proposed routes (pptx).

While the agency did study the underserved areas to determine the route, they want input from residents.   To comment on the route, go to the DFVH feedback page Tell Us What You Think, click on the "What do you think of the Neighborhood Ride Service By Taxis?" option (the last on the list as is shown in the orange box below), and then select "open in a new window-->."

My recommendations to the Department of For-Hire Vehicles are to post the route document in PDF since not everyone has PowerPoint and to get rid of the blurry images and replace them with ones which are readable.
