Bus Rears for Taxi Eyes

About a year ago, I noticed that there was a battle for taxi drivers.
The “yellow” industry posted this “Drive Yellow, Earn Green” ad on the back of a NYCT bus in an attempt to attract drivers.  I then noticed that the whole taxi industry is using this space.

Here are the ads I’ve seen… I find it comical that one form of transit is advertising on the back of their competition.

Drive Yellow, It’s Easier than Ever. Isn’t that racist?

14,000 is a big number! Wait is there some fine print?

1600 is less than 14000 but it’s weekly! I gett it!

Let’s not talk about money.

You pay us, and drive. No need to speak English anymore!

Unemployment has no shifts, no boss and no limits also!

Hey, maybe if we keep the same slogan and change the color, we can attract new drivers.

I liked the 14000 guarantee better.

Is a 10% commission a good or bad thing?

Free Cars! Where do I sign?

What happened to the happy white guys in the last ad? Maybe they are not happy anymore.

via-1000

Only 1000, but I the other guy had bigger numbers!

What is the guarantee? $10/hr?

I’m guessing this battle will continue until the driverless car is introduced.

Update 11/21/16 – I found three more

I’ll take the $6,500/month – it’s a bigger number

$700 When I start? How much when I finish?
