Only a test

Square (credit card reader system) has received approval from the NY Taxi and Limousine Commission to run a small pilot program of their payment technology in 30 cabs. In this test, an iPad will be installed in the partition, and passengers can view trip info like current location and pay with credit cards using the attached swiper. Square is already being used in some taxis in San Francisco and other cities. Full story from the NYT.
