As part of its recent “Taxi of Tomorrow” exhibition in New York City, Nissan hosted a Ca$h Cab for charity event with host Ben Bailey fielding questions. Yours truly and my boyfriend, Matthew, opted to play for The Trevor Project, a crisis intervention and suicide prevention resource for LGBTQ youth. I’m happy to report that we did the gay community proud as Ni$$an Taxi Trivia Team 1.
Did you know an average of 600,000 New Yorkers take cabs each day? As you can tell from the video, we definitely did not:
Nissan graciously overlooked our taxi trivia flub and donated $1,000 to The Trevor Project. In the process, we also got a glimpse of the ongoing development of the Nissan NV200 taxicab, the winner of the “Taxi of Tomorrow” contest. Beginning in 2013, this five-passenger minivan will become the official taxi of New York City. A mock up of the rear cabin allowed curious onlookers to get a preview of what’s in store for future taxi rides.
Thanks again to Nissan for supporting a good cause!
