We have a hard time paying for a taxi except in some 4 a.m. dead-of-February, G-Train-shuttle-bus situation that warrants forgoing our trusty MetroCard. But here’s a chance to not have to worry about it for a year: as part of the search for the “Taxi of Tomorrow,” the city is giving away a year of free taxi rides (up to $5,000). To enter, just fill out their short survey, which asks you about your taxi habits and what you’d like to see in the new taxis (sunroofs for better views, more storage, lights that tell other drivers that taxi doors are opening, etc.) and even lets you vote on some of the designs. The drawing is Dec. 17, though even if we won, we’d probably still take the subway, because where else do you get to see this?
