Ed. Note: In the past we’ve debated whether or not the taxis actually come – anyone had recent success using them?


“This weekend, trains will operate as follows:

Yellow and Green line trains will operate at regular weekend intervals throughout the weekend.
Red Line trains will operate every 18 minutes on Saturday and every 20 minutes on Sunday.
Forest Glen (Red Line) will be closed Sunday between 7 a.m. and 2 p.m. for a response drill.
Orange, Silver and Blue Line trains will operate every 18 minutes beginning Saturday at 8 p.m.”

    I’ve tried to use them in past years but always get a busy signal when I call. Has anybody actually gotten a free cab?

      I have twice. Though the second time was NYE and someone stole my cab before I had a chance to leave the bar. I still hope karma got that person hard.

    The last time this worked for me was Halloween 2009 out in Clarendon. Haven’t even tried since, it took about 2 hours to arrive then so I figured it wasn’t worth sitting around for that long.
