Behind the Wheel 3: From Uber/Lyft to Taxi – The Unexpurgated “I Drive SF” Columns

Order the print version here

The digital version is available here

The third installment in the Behind the Wheel series is a ribald journey into the reality of driving a bonafide San Francisco taxicab. Gritty and raw, the view from a cab is not for the faint-hearted. From facilitating drug deals to abetting prostitution to just getting people home safely from the clubs… The job of a night cabbie isn’t over until the sun comes up.
