    Progress In The Big Apple — NYC Mayor Bloomberg Targets 1/3 Electric Taxi Fleet By 2020; Largest Bike Share In Country

    Progress In The Big Apple — NYC Mayor Bloomberg Targets 1/3 Electric Taxi Fleet By 2020; Largest Bike Share In Country

    February 22, 2013Cynthia Shahan

    Mayor Bloomberg addressed urban issues in his recent “State of the City” address, sharing with the crowd news of more structural implementation of clean air:
    “[T]he biggest change to our transportation network in ages is coming this summer: the largest bike share program in the country. I know Marty can’t wait. Bike share has been successful and popular in every city it’s been tried — and here, it will offer New Yorkers more options to get around town faster.”

    Electric Taxi Fleet
    In addition to the bike-sharing program, Bloomberg is aiming to have one-third of the NYC taxi fleet be electric vehicles by 2020, the most ambitious such effort I’ve seen. To help that along, he has also announced 10,000 new EV charging spots in the Big Apple.
    All of these transportation initiatives will help us achieve one of PlaNYC’s top goals: giving New York the cleanest air of any big city in the country. Remember: Clean air means you live longer. Even if you don’t care about climate change, cleaning our air is good for your health.
    Speaking of climate change, we’ve reduced our carbon footprint by 16 percent in just five years. Now, we’ll challenge the city’s leading corporations to join City government in cutting their carbon footprints by 30 percent in ten years.
    —Mayor Bloomberg
    So, with the many urban efforts to abandon what does not work, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is working to implement what does work. Together with City Council, Bloomberg plans to amend the city’s building code so that up to 20% of all new public parking spaces in private developments will be wired and ready for electric vehicles, creating up to 10,000 parking spots for electric vehicles over the next seven years.

    NYC Taxi
    Like many, I have always been in love with NYC, and this affair just keeps getting better.
