Free Taxi Rides to Union Station?

August 29th, 2008 by Mr. Fanrastic

In front of Toronto Union Station you can always find a row of taxis populating the taxi stand. The taxi stand is clearly identified by the sign at the bottom of the picture below. But if you look up a little, you will also find a sign that reads, “NO SOLICITING TAXI FARES”:

You’ll notice that there are no arrows on the No Soliciting sign, which means that it applies equally in both directions, including the taxi stand. So, how is this supposed to work, exactly? Does this mean free taxi rides to Union? You could get in a cab, be driven to Union Station, and then point out this sign when the cabbie asks for his fare. And then you can find yourself on the nightly news as the latest victim of cabbie rage. You can thank me later for your 15 minutes of fame.
