Taxis for a Rainy Day

It's 0056h and it's raining cats and dogs out there.

Very likely, half the people who need cabs have called three different cab companies, which means a population of available taxis are actually milling around uselessly while people get frustrated.

I wonder if we shouldn't allow for extra cabs to be put into service whenever rain is forecast. This ought to increase the likelihood of simply hailing a cab if they are roaming hotspots. And if some of these extra cabs could "patrol" bus routes, there could be an unspoken arrangement for rainy days where being at a bus station would increase your likelihood of flagging down a cab?

Anyway... It's just sad to see how the city grinds to a halt as soon as the rain hits.
