Bostonist: Venture Capital Internet Cabs

"Chanel 5's Cindy and Jeff have a blog. It's about traffic. Today it was about grabbing a Taxi. When Bostonist has a flight to catch we've been known to walk ourselves to the nearest hotel so that we can grab the flat rate to Logan because it's almost always cheaper than a ride with the meter running. As fast as the Big Dig has made an airport run, traffic usually slows us down enough to add a couple of dollars to the price. For 40 bucks from Cambridge hotels, less from downtown, the flat rate is enticing to our wallet (of course the silver line or blue line is the cheapest method – sometimes the T just doesn't instill us with confidence.) The service is available in 40 major US cities including Boston."
