The future of taxi transport in New York City could look a lot different by 2014 -- though we can guarantee it will still be yellow. In an unprecedented move, the city will be unifying its iconic taxicab fleet, introducing the first-ever custom-built taxicab designed through a competition dubbed the "Taxi of Tomorrow." New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) Chairman David Yassky unveiled the three finalists in the search for the city's new cab in November. The announcement comes three years after the TLC first made public its intention to standardize the vehicle, and nearly a year since the agency issued a request for proposals inviting auto manufacturers and designers to submit their best concepts for the new design.

when all the oil runs out the taxi of tomorrow will consist of 3 tires with a carriage compartment powered by a chain that is rotated on a pully system attached to 2 gears with sprockets of different sizes.
the rich will use ones powered by domesticated animals like the horse.
