All hail the humble yellow taxi — it’s still the king when it comes to zooming around town.
A Post road test Saturday of newfangled ways of traveling in Manhattan found that the old way remains the fastest.
Four reporters raced from the Port Authority Bus Terminal at West 42nd Street and Eighth Avenue to Broadway and Park Place, across from City Hall.
The result: Yellow taxis were the speed and convenience champs. It took less than a minute to get a cab, and the 3.9-mile trip took just 18 minutes.
A pedal-pushing reporter on a Citi Bike arrived at City Hall in 22 minutes, pulling up in a surprising second place. Not only was the Citi Bike quick, but at $10.53 it was also cheapest.
In third place was Uber, which allows users to hail taxis or black cars with cellphone apps. An Uber car made the trip in 23 minutes — though the reporter had to wait seven minutes for the ride to show up.
As for the newest entrant in the ride-share market — instead of Lyft, maybe they should call it “Left,” as in left behind.
A reporter waited at the bus terminal for two hours for a Lyft car, but none showed up.
Lyft said that because no cars were available, it would automatically charge a tip of either 50 percent or 75 percent “to encourage more people to drive.”
