New York's Black Taxis to Go Green, Cut Emissions in Half

NYC (TGW) – New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg unveiled new fuel emissions standards for the city’s 10,000 black taxis that will compel the owners to buy more fuel efficient cars.

This announcement comes one year after the city announced its 13,000 yellow taxis will go hybrid by 2012.

The black town cars are responsible for 2% of the city’s emissions.

According to the mayor, emissions will be cut by half by the cars because of the standard.
