New York's City Hybrid Cabs...

In June 2007 I learned that New York's Mayor Bloomberg was trying to get over 1200 cabs to convert to Hybrid. Today I read that 6 Ford Escape Hybrid taxies have offically entered operations. According to the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission, each New York taxi averages nearly 100,000 miles of driving annually and the fuel savings for drivers and operators could reach the thousands of dollars every year. I have visited the city in the past and the first thing that I notice is the cabs running around that can use a little tune up or a possible replacement. I wish the mayor the best on this endeavor, and I suspect that the cab companies will continue to introduce Hybrid cars because of the bottom line....!
