We’re Using Ford Hybrid Taxis To Improve The Environment

I’m a cab driver and the taxi commissioner for San Francisco, and I’m proud that we’re the first U.S. city to adopt hybrid vehicles for use as taxis. We use Ford Escape hybrids and Ford Fusion hybrids. These are the same vehicles that you can buy – nothing special or unique for use as a taxi. We’re putting hybrids to work as taxis to make a big difference in San Francisco.

DB This is so cool -- inspires me to do more, seeing how such a small change can make a big difference. Ford, please do more too! Bring out the electric car! THAT is something I'm dying to have. Beautiful vid. Great job, and fun to see. ...Great idea, Rick V, for fast food drivers. Maybe Fedex and UPS could get in the game too. (Ford, get on that market!)

Rick Viers I really feel good that we can offer a product like this, and that a community like the taxi drivers could take advantage of it. Maybe there will be other groups,who will see how they can also benefit. I'm thinking lots of fleet drivers,expediting,fast food delivery.
