I don't really go in for hyperbole, but the Boston Taxi Fare Finder is the greatest website application ever. Google Street View is revolutionary, sure, but it doesn't exactly have any practical use unless you're a terrorist or a Peeping Tom. But being able to estimate the cost of your taxi ride from point A to point B before you even set foot to pavement? That's a game changer. Says here that a cab from my place in Watertown to the Globe would cost about $36.30 and is about 12.51 miles. Looks like I'm gonna have to expense that ride.
Plot your route here.
