Should cities invest in hybrid or fully electric taxi cabs?

  • Yes, and many already are.

    San Francisco is 100% hybrid taxi. LA approaching 50%, Chicago not far behind. San Diego is expanding also, as is Seattle and Austin. New York City started out doing the right thing, but is now on the wrong path, giving an exclusive monopoly 10 year contract to a non-hybrid taxi.

  • Yes, it would help.

    Yes, it would help the city, the people who live in it, and the environment in so many ways. Cities are often very polluted, and this can have negative effects on the people who live in the city and beyond. Hybrid and electric taxis are a way to reduce this pollution.

  • Fully electric taxi cabs should be a must!

    I think an investment like fully electric taxi cabs would be very beneficial to our earth and cities. With gas prices going up and up, and oil spills in the Gulf, I see no reason not to switch to electric taxi cabs. In the long run they will make our air cleaner, and they will be over all cheaper.

  • Yes! And all should be American made!

    Indeed, cities should invest in hybrid or fully electric taxi cabs; this should've been done already. And all the new vehicles should be American made, so that they will keep Americans employed and cut down on the greed that has sent our jobs overseas by corporate America. Cities have a responsibility to their municipalities and citizens to be environmentally conscious.

  • Electric or hybrid taxi cabs would be a boon to the market.

    Especially in large metropolitan cities, hybrid or electric taxi cabs would give a big boost the hybrid and electric car market. It is an absolute fact the the US and other countries need to reduce the use of oil and move towards alternative fuels. Taxi cabs in the city would be a perfect way to get going on this. The benefits would come to the taxi companies by saving money on fuel. The cities would also benefit with cleaner air.
