Smart Greens Emerging In Los Angeles

    The final sentence is not supported by the story, which is essentially about Blue versus Green. When it comes to their oxen being gored, city governments who depend on franchise fees and campaign donations or the established service providers could care less about the environment.

      LA’s a great place to explore different options for taxi services without worrying about running into massive entrenched interests, because there simply aren’t any massive taxi interests in LA. Taxis are just very rare there; “everyone” has their own car.

        “There’s a good story in the New York Times detailing
        the fight between Los Angeles’ taxi industry and a set of insurgent
        smart phone powered companies looking to disrupt the status quo.” ;<)

          I stand by my above comment, keyword “massive”.

          Taxis just don’t matter as much in LA as in NY, so this LA is a good place to win against taxi companies.

    “Smart Greens”. Sounds like an oxymoron to me.
