MON 11/17 to SUN 11/23: Free Cab Rides (w/ Conditions)

Noon to 8pm
"Tylenol Warming Taxis"
at various CVS locations

As part of a Tylenol promotion, there will be special taxis outside of some CVS locations this week from Noon to 8pm. They will supposedly take you "wherever you need to go in Boston."

Who knows if they'll dump you at the city limits, or if they might take you anywhere within a certain number of miles... It's really happening, because the taxis were in NYC last week.

If I were near one of these stores at the right time, I'd give it a shot. Some people might be freaked out by getting into a non-medallion cab, so there might be rides available... You probably wouldn't have to tip 'em!

Update: Okay... From what I've been told is that you can get around Boston / Brookline / Suffolk County area with a maximum "trip value" of $25, which will take you pretty far. Maybe they'll take you across the Charles, if you ask nicely... (Also, they're not Boston cabbies.)
