Boston taxi drivers should be visible, which is part of a group of best practices for covering a person's face in the passenger compartment of a car, said Susan Bass, director of transit safety and performance at the American Public Transportation Association. She said many passengers tend to be "tense," and their reactions are often seen as anti-public transit. It's not just about getting people to open their mouth, she said. "It's about making sure that the person you're seeing has privacy, and that the person you're not seeing has privacy."

Uber in Boston is trying to take advantage of the disruptive potential of Uber's self-driving vehicles. The ride-hailing company on Wednesday announced its plans to use its robots in Boston and other cities as part of a trial of the autonomous vehicles, including Uber's own, with U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It marks the first time that an automaker is trying to use "driverless vehicles" in the United States.

Uber rates in Boston are higher than New York's because two groups of drivers -- independent contractors and uberX drivers -- often work at different rates. Boston is the most expensive city to drive for Uber in, according to Garett Cabrillo of Wait$Waze. In Manhattan, you can drive for the taxi industry at about $16 an hour. Uber CEO Travis Kalanick earlier this year said that if Uber could do it all over again, it would run on a hybrid model. The company uses cars for pickups, instead of cars for pickups and dropoffs, and drivers for the services operate in a separate fleet, not participating in its rideshare program.

Taxi prices in Boston? While some increased costs may be because of additional dispatch costs, an additional third of fares come from increased taxi permits. By owning the vehicles, companies such as Uber, Lyft, and Sidecar are able to collect these permit fees, which can hit hundreds of dollars a year. One possible solution: Insuring taxis. In order to absorb the added expenses of having to drive for a taxi company, local residents could invest in a taxi insurance policy that includes liability coverage, since the average insured car costs around $22,000. If the safe driving guarantees become more of a standard now, it is likely that drivers would be willing to accept insurance as a way to cover their costs.
