The Bloomberg Administration is said to be considering a new option for expanding taxi service in the outer boroughs.

The Wall Street Journal reports that under the plan, hundreds of stands would be set up where livery cabs could legally pick up passengers.

A previous plan to sell more yellow cab medallions for the outer boroughs caused outrage among livery cabbies, who say it would put them out of business.
