Now, this probably won’t even register on most people’s radar as there seems to be (usually when you’re drunk at 3am in the Mission) only about a dozen or so cabbies aimlessly driving about totally ignoring you while you desperately wave your arms around standing halfway in the street. But…although a Muni strike looks to have been avoided, a taxi strike may be on the horizon.
It’s hard to catch a cab in SF and when you do finally hale one down (or, most likely, you called the dispatcher – who’s rude – and the cab doesn’t even bother showing up), it’s pricey. And now fare prices are about to increase. Ouch. The $1.50 fare on Muni is looking better and better.
