Judge Delays Requirement For Cabs To Go Green

A court gives city new cabs a month-long reprieve on going green, as a lawsuit to stop the switch is pending.

The Taxi and Limousine Commission says a group of medallion owners with vehicles retiring in October can operate their taxis until November, as a federal court looks at a lawsuit filed by Metropolitan Taxicab Board of Trade against the mandate that all new cabs get 25 miles per gallon.

The suit claims that hybrid fuel-efficient vehicles were not built to withstand the heavy use that city cabs endure, and are unsafe for use in city streets.

The court will hear arguments next month.
