Boston gets a Hybrid Taxi

A Toyota Camry Hybrid to be exact. Other cities, including New York and San Francisco have had hybrid vehicles serving as taxis for months now, but Boston didn't have one, until now.

The new hybrid taxi is part of the Boston CleanAir Cabs designed to replace older taxis with those with alternate fuels making them cleaner. So far, only the Toyota Camry Hybrid, Ford Escape Hybrid and CNG Ford Crown Victoria are eligible. Any new taxis that qualify will have a green strip indicating they are running cleaner for the environment.

The MassPort Agency has also partnered with the program. Massport is considering giving reduced airport access fees as a way to get more alternatives out there on the streets.

Hybrid Taxis may cost more up front, but drivers like them because they have to pay less in fuel costs. - Boston Gets First Hybrid Taxi
