Burlington Taxi Rants 

This week, Seven Days staffer Mike Ives wrote about the strange and shadowy world of Burlington's taxi system.

It's a story idea that's been kicking around our office for a while now. If you've ever taken a cab around here, or tried to figure out how the hell they come up with their fares, you can probably understand why.

Many of us have wondered why it costs so much money to go from one part of the city to another — or why it seems to cost a different amount depending on which cab you call.

Hopefully Mike's story answers some questions — and raises others.

As we were reading it over yesterday, we realized that this was the perfect opportunity to ask people to share their own experiences. So we set up this nifty webform to collect your stories. We've already received some responses. We'll be printing some of them in next week's Seven Days.
