Yesterday I saw a hybrid cab operated by the Green Cab Association of Somerville. This is apparently old news, but I’d somehow missed it. I think it’s a great idea — the combination of high use and mostly in-town driving seems like an excellent match for hybrid engines.
My wunnerful girlfriend and I are sort of planning a road trip (which means renting a vehicle) and she’s has been looking into options for renting hybrids, and not finding a whole lot of vehicles that are actually available to rent. Boo.
