The Answer is “Syracuse, NY”

Paid for my cab this morning with a debit card. Driver pulled out a multi-part carbon. Put my card under it and rubbed the paper with the side of his pen to get an imprint.

He then called in the number to his dispatcher, who ran the transaction and cleared me to get out of the cab.

Where am I?

Hint – there’s no Uber here.
