Stories From A Chicago Cab

End of the Road

It's time to put this site to bed. I don't drive a cab any more so there won't be any more stories to add. There isn't much reason for this stuff to sit here gathering whatever the virtual equivalent of dust is called.

A video portrait shot during my last days driving a cab by filmmaker John McNaughton.

A second book will be published (probably in 2014), but until then you're welcome to look through Hack's humble beginnings, to read the essay I wrote about quitting the business, and to buy a copy of the first book (while supplies last...)

Thanks so much for reading,


p.s. If you wanna follow what I'm doing just look in on my website, on Twitter, or my art column.

Thanks for taking the time to have come out to Warrensburg at UCM, I've got a longer e-mail I am planning to send to you soon, but I wanted to take the time to tell you that you were the perfect bit of inspiration and drive that I needed at that moment. I was feeling very much in a "stalled portfolio" sort of mode.

Talk to you soon. - Mario

Florida Taxi Driver Blog said...

I am 55 years old, owner of single cab in St Petersburg, FL
After 10 years of hacking I am pretty much burn out as a cab driver and the only reason I am still doing it, because I have no else to go.
Luckily, I have shift driver to drive my cab and help me financially with all the expenses.
I also run small taxi driver blog which down the road should bring me some income from advertising and supplement my SS after I retire...?
