Apple Green Cabs now in the Big Apple

11/18/2013 - By Marea Edynak

Have you visited NYC lately? if not, you might be surprised when you see bright green cabs on the street. What you need to know is that you can't hail them in Manhattan south of 110th Street on the West Side or South of 96th Street on the East Side in what is called "The Forbidden Zone." They are meant to be used by riders starting their trips  in Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, Staten Island and Northern Manhattan.

You can take the cabs from the outer boroughs into Manhattan but you can't take them from Manhattan to the outer boroughs. That way they will bring service to areas previously undeserved by the yellow cabs. And they have a GPS system that won't let the meters turn on in The Forbidden Zone.

This will help visitors to attractions such as The Bronx Zoo and The Brooklyn Museum of Art where it is often hard to find a cab to take back to Manhattan.

The cost is the same as the yellow cabs. And you hail them the same way. Just stick your arm out at an upward angle and point your index finger.
