Dear Transit Sam,
Are yellow cabs allowed to pick up or drop off at bus stops in Manhattan?
Anh, New York
Yes. Statute 4-08(c)(3) of the New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law states that “no person shall stand or park a vehicle other than an authorized bus in its assigned bus stop…except that the operator of a vehicle may temporarily stand therein for the purpose of expeditiously receiving and discharging passengers.” So, go ahead, but be quick and don’t block incoming buses!
