Message from Metro Taxi:
Beginning in December, Metro Taxi will launch a fleet of brand new wheelchair accessible taxicabs that are spacious and comfortable. The individual using the wheelchair is secured in the front passenger position next to the driver. This newly-produced taxi, the MV-1, will be in addition to our existing accessible taxis. We will provide service to our current territory, which covers Branford, Bridgeport, East Haven, Guilford, Hamden, Meriden, Milford, New Haven, North Branford, North Haven, Orange, Stratford, Trumbull, Wallingford, West Haven, and Woodbridge.
The MV-1 taxi was designed to be an accessible taxi and is not retrofitted. Metro Taxi, because of its concern for the environment, chose to have these vehicles come factory-equipped powered by Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), a U.S. produced alternative fuel with much lower carbon emissions. The MV-1 is the state-of-the-art in accessible, environmentally friendly transportation. Metro Taxi has brought them to Connecticut.
