This is a greasemonkey script to estimate the cab fare for directions in google maps. It currently works on routes in New York City.

In its current form you need to be running greasemonkey on firefox. If you know how to install these, here is the script.



Once installed, here's how you use this thing.

  1. When you visit google maps, a button appears at the top labeled Get Cab Fare.
  2. Click this button and the you are shown an estimated cab fare.


To use you must be running greasemonkey on firefox. So, I'll mention both.

  1. Install firefox.
  2. Install greasemonkey.
  3. Go to the link gtaxi.user.js a click the Install button in the upper right. If you don't see this button you haven't installed greasemonkey correctly -- in which case return to step #2.
