Southern California has recently welcomed the debut of a scheme that will see over 100 compressed natural gas (CNG) Ford Transit Connect taxis enter service. Yellow Cab of Orange County, the company that will run the fleet has already put the first 10 units of the car on the road.
"Our goal is to convert our entire fleet to alternative fuels, so bringing the CNG Transit Connect Taxis into service is an exciting step in that direction,
" Tim Conlon, president and general manager of California Yellow Cab, said. "The drivers are excited too. They have been lining up to be among the first to get behind the wheel of a CNG-powered taxi.
And there will also be other cities that will see the Ford Transit Connect CNG taxi enter service, such Las Vegas and St. Louis. Since we're here, we'll also mention Chicago, where the car is already catering to the transportation needs of the city's inhabitants.❐
