Relaxed taxi regulations in Hollywood

June 16, 2009 5:14:12 AM PDT
It just got easier to hail a cab in Hollywood. Under new, relaxed taxi regulations, cab drivers can now pick up and drop off passengers in restricted zones such as red-curb areas. A similar program has been started in downtown Los Angeles.

The idea is to make it more convenient for people from tourists to club-hoppers to get around these high traffic areas without their cars.

For now, it's being tested as a pilot program, set to run through the end of January 2010.
