A study released Thursday ranked Chicago as the most congested city. Now, a Chicago taxi company has announced its plan to run a dozen cabs on natural gas, instead of gasoline.
Taxi Medallion Management aims to drive down its total emissions by 25 percent, Crain’s Chicago Business reports.
The��Ford Transit Connect vans that the Yellow Cab Chicago affiliate purchased will help it reach that goal: natural gas emits fewer pollutants and fewer greenhouse gases.
The vans are also more fuel efficient — 23 miles per gallon, up 21 percent from a regular sedan cab, according to Crain’s.������The vans are set to arrive in March.
