Cab Diversity - What a Rainbow of Colors Out There!

Aha, gotcha! You thought I was going to be blogging on all the different drivers. But no, this blog is all about taxi cab colors. Yellow is taxi cab color. I don't know who decided or when (taxi historian, line 1!). But it's yellow all over the US.

Not here. It's yellow. And black. And red, white, tan, green, mauve, taupe, teal, and on and on and on. DC is a veritable 64 box of crayolas in cab colors.

I like the blue and teal cabs myself. But not the baby blue ones (UCC), that's just a silly color.

Except for one company, all the cabs on Mau'i are just standard car colors. My cab, ONE-NINE, is avocado green and is a Mercury Gran Marquis. No lettering on the sides and advertisements are illegal on cabs in Hawai'i. Just dat lil' ol' yellar roof light to distinguish it.

My friend left his laptop in a cab that he thinks was blue last night. Any suggestions about which companies to call?

UCC is one of the largest of the "blue" cabs in DC. They are a light blue. Maryland also has blue cabs (Barwood) but they aren't supposed to pick up in DC. Other than that there are a whole lot of cabs of various colors working independently in the city.
