So lately I have been loitering at the Bridgeport Train Station for twice the time that I spent a month ago. I am aware of the real, licensed taxis, and the people picking up family members. I watch the 3 empty Police vehicles and wonder why they need 3 cars.... couldn't they meet at the Bpt Police headquarters and ride in 1 car? I also notice the illegal cab drivers, who seek out confused people hoping for a taxi. I wish that I could hear those conversations! Finally I see a young woman come out of the doorway which has 525 Water Street emblazoned above it, and she looks about. She sees the black SUV in front of me and checks her phone. She then opens the rear door and gets into the other car. Now I realize that this other driver could be a Lyft driver, but it got me thinking.... I have always kept a car length or two away from the main doors because I felt like people picking up family members had more of a "right" to block that area with their cars. I never thought that 20 feet mattered. But now I am wondering.... How precise is the determination of "the closest driver get the first ping"? Do I need to be literally on top of the front doors to get that first ping? (Have I been screwing myself by being a "nice" guy?) I really would appreciate your thoughts on this!
