UniCab submits proposal to NYC Taxi of Tomorrow search

Last week UniCab, another division of the company behind our founders – Universal Design Company (UNICO) – unveiled its website www.thetaxioftomorrow.com created to accompany its submission to the NYC Taxis and Limousine Commission.

UniCab is designed to complement the cityscape

NYC is looking to upgrade its taxi fleet with vehicles meeting the following requirements:

* Meets highest safety standards
* Superior passenger experience
* Superior driver comfort and amenities
* Appropriate purchase price and ongoing maintenance and repair costs
* Smaller environmental footprint (lower emissions and improved fuel economy)
* Smaller physical footprint (with more usable interior room)
* Compliance with appropriate Americans with Disabilities Act requirements
* Iconic design that will identify the new taxi with New York City

The UniCab design meets all these requirements in spades, and has received coverage in the following publications (a few amongst many!):
