NYCTaxifinder Now Includes Yellow Cab Inspection Date/Time Data

Last night we added date/time data for Yellow Cab emissions inspections.

If you know a cabbie, pass the word on to them.

The TLC currently instructs New York’s cabbies to find their scheduled inspection by downloading a document that they have to search through.
