Benjamin: Excuse me, what's the screen near your steering wheel for?

Taxi driver: It's a portable TV. It's a popular thing now.

Benjamin: Oh, that's new to me. So what's on everyday?

Taxi driver: News about current affairs, documentaries, music, movies, noncommercial ads and so on.

Benjamin: Is there anything interesting?

Taxi driver: Yes, there are something good and informative. I think that many people underestimate the value of TV in education.

Benjamin: I agree. Are there any commercials on the TV?

Taxi driver: Of course. Because the TV stations need to make money from commercials between the programs.

Benjamin: That makes a lot of sense. Does the TV work well?

Taxi driver: Not always. It depends on the transmission of the satellite signals.

Benjamin: I got it. Do you pay for the programs?

Taxi driver: Yes, 50 Yuan per month.

Benjamin: It is a little bit expensive, but it's worth it.

Taxi driver: Yeah. You know driving is boring. TV can get me out of the fatigue of driving.

Benjamin: It can also entertain your passengers like me.

Taxi driver: That's the point.

本杰明:不好意思,请问一下,你方向盘旁边的那个屏幕是干什么的啊?

出租车司机:这是个移动电视,现在非常流行。

本杰明:对我来说这真是个新鲜事物。那每天这上面都在播放什么节目呢?

出租车司机:实事新闻、纪录片、音乐、电影和公益广告等等。

本杰明:有有趣的节目吗?

出租车司机:有啊,这上面有些东西非常好,而且信息量也非常大。我认为很多人都低估了电视在教育方面的价值。

本杰明:我同意。那这种电视上有商业广告吗?

出租车司机:当然有啊。因为电视台需要从节目中间插播的广告赚取利润。

本杰明:似乎是这样。那这个电视运作得正常吗?

出租车司机:不是一直都好。这取决于卫星信号传输的好坏。

本杰明:我懂了。那你需要付费吗?

出租车司机:要付费的。一个月50块钱。

本杰明:费用有点贵,但是却很值。

出租车司机:是啊,你知道,驾驶是非常乏味的。电视可以解除我开车的疲劳。

本杰明:而且它还能给像我一样的乘客带来快乐。

出租车司机:你说对了。

NYC Taxi Cabs

Taxi cabs are both loved and hated by New Yorkers. They serve as a quick and easy means of transportation across Manhattan, a route not amply served by the subways. The downside with having an abundance of cabs is the traffic that results. Most traffic-jams in mid-town are speckled with many of the 12,o53 yellow cabs that serve the city.

纽约的出租车

对于出租车,纽约的市民是又爱又恨。出租车在曼哈顿是一种快捷的交通工具,在这一地区地铁不是很普遍。而大量的出租车的弊端就是导致交通问题。在市中心,大部分交通堵塞都是因为服务城市的12053辆黄色出租车部分拥堵在一起造成的。

Taxi Fares in New York

Cabs are cash only and it's a good idea to have small bills because the cabbies can't usually break anything higher than $20. While cabs are relatively expensive for a single person, it can actually be a bargain with 3 or more riders. The rates for taxicabs are as follows:

Initial fare: $2.00

Each 1/5 mile (4 blocks): $0.30

Each 1 minute idle: $0.20

Night surcharge: $0.50(after 8 p.m. until 6 a.m.)

Additional riders: FREE

纽约出租车费

打出租车需要付现金。因为出租车司机通常无法换开多于20美金的钱,所以说随身准备零钞是必要的。但是对于个人来说,打出租车比较贵,与其他三个或是更多的人一起搭乘一辆车比较合算。费用如下:

起步费:2.00美元

每0.2英里(4个街区):0.30美元

每等待一分钟:0.20美元

晚上行车要加收:0.50美元(晚上8点到第二天早上6点)

其他的乘客:免费
