Long Island's First and Only Alternative Fuel Taxi Fleet Unveiled
Long Island will now have a fleet of 40 new alternative fuel taxicabs thanks to a grant secured by the Town of Hempstead through its membership in the Greater Long Island Clean Cities Coalition. This event marks history as it is the first and only alternative fuel taxi fleet on Long Island. The 40 new taxicabs were on display last Thursday during a press conference held in Mineola where Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray, together with Councilwoman Angie Cullin and representatives from the Greater Long Island Clean Cities Coalition joined with Lawrence Blessinger Jr., vice president of All Island Taxi and affiliates Ollie's Taxi and Delux Taxi, to unveil the fleet.
