York’s first electric, wheelchair accessible black cab has hit the streets. The zero emissions taxi is an updated version of the famous London style black cab and is packed with modern features and has extra room for accessibility equipment. The cab was purchased by a local taxi driver with help from the council’s Low Emission Taxi Grant scheme. The scheme provides financial support for eligible York taxi drivers to get low emission taxis which can help improve air quality in York.
