UniCab Taxi Concept for Now York

By luanpa in | June 2, 2010 | Comments Off on UniCab Taxi Concept for Now York

UniCab is a taxi concept for Tomorrow Now York City. New York is a modern city, but its taxis are exactly the opposite. In order to get away with the old taxis and to add something new reflecting the modern essence of the city.

A couple of years have passed now since the New York Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) announced its search for a vehicle that would replace the taxis of New York City  with something that better fits the times. The TLC created a website for creative types to submit ideas for the “Taxi of Tomorrow,” and one of the more interesting proposals to come in over the last couple of years is something called the UniCab.

UniCab looks nothing like a traditional taxi, aside from the yellow color. The UniCab features seating for four passengers, an automated ramp for those with disabilities, an infotainment center that displays intended routes and attractions along the way and outward sight lines that allow all of the passengers to get a great view of the glorious city of New York. Though nothing more than a design sketch right now, the UniCab could change our perception of taxis in the future and make hailing a cab the hip, green thing to do.
