For about two months, my friends and I have experienced an extreme difficulty in finding taxis after midnight on weekends. We live in the U Street area, so normally cabs have been plentiful and we’ve never had to wait too long for one. Lately, however, my friends who live in Chinatown have managed to walk all the way home without seeing a single unoccupied taxi. I experienced this myself this last Saturday when I left the northern end of Adams Morgan, walked down 18th, turned onto U, and made it all the way to 9th without ever seeing a free cab. I don’t mind walks, but it was pretty late, and I was freezing!
Is something going on that anyone else has noticed? I asked a cab driver, and he told me that wasn’t possible, and that no person ever has to wait more then 15 minutes for a cab – even after midnight. Clearly, he was wrong, but I’m really hoping that this period of difficulty has been a fluke rather than a sign of things to come.
