Hybrid taxis rescue cyclists

We’ve featured a number of ‘green’ taxi services in the past, including London’s greentomatocars, which launched in March 2006. greentomatocar’s hybrid fleet has a new competitor to reckon with: Climatecars launched in London late last month. The eco-friendly taxi service currently drives five Toyota Prius cars, with three more to follow this month. The company is targeting London’s corporate market, offering first class service and extras like complimentary magazines, newspapers and Belu mineral water (the “first bottled water that doesn’t contribute to climate change”).
