John Justive 5pts Trevor, someone at City Hall must have handed you a glass of KooAid. 50 percent of medallion taxis in New York City are hybrids. Not a small amount. By City law, 42 percent of all New York City medallion taxis are owned by a taxi driver who owns only one taxi. The reason hybris are popular is because drivers and owners save a ton of money on fuel and maintenance. Furthermore, City law, not state law, mandates that medallion taxis be replaced with showroom new vehicles every three to six years depending on type and whether double shifted. You guys need a fact checker.
