NEW YORK (AP) - The mayor of San Juan is upset that a New York City taxi driver would not take her to the Bronx.

Carmen Yulin Cruz has been visiting New York from Puerto Rico.

She said that on Wednesday she hailed a yellow taxi in Manhattan to go to her Bronx hotel.

After traveling for a few blocks, the driver said he would not go any further. Cruz said the driver claimed to not know where the hotel was and refused to go to the Bronx.

She said a second cabbie did agree to go to the Bronx but complained the entire trip.

City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito on Thursday condemned the driver’s behavior and promised an investigation.

Taxi drivers are required to take passengers to any address in the city.
