Pimping Out Taxi Cabs With Art

Unless you’ve been in the Cash Cab, we all know the insides of the rent-per-minute vehicles are pretty blah and understandably so seeing that customers usually just rush their way in and out of them. In Mumbai, however, the taxi cab has evolved to be more than just a form of transportation but has steadily weaved itself into the fabric of its rich and diverse culture. Keeping this in mind, Taxi Fabric is outfitting the interiors of taxis from the seats to the ceiling with a fabric line featuring artwork by local artists. According to the drivers who have opted for the modded interiors, customers have been tipping more and sticking around longer thereby proving that people are willing to pay extra for ambiance even if it’s just for a short ride.
