Prius Hybrid Cab

Meet the world’s first hybrid-cab driver in an interview in Grist Magazine. Andrew Grant’s been driving a Prius Yellow Cab since 2000, and he loves it. Driving the hybrid cab saves him about $1,000 a month in fuel costs, and the repairs bills are cut in half. His company thought he was nuts at first, but now Yellow Cab in Vancouver operates 40 hybrid vehicles in its fleet of 210 taxis, and plans on buying 30 more over the next year.
