There are new, environmentally-friendly taxis in Chicago, accessible to people with disabilities.

These new taxis operate on composed natural gas, which should help save on fuel. The taxis are also roomy and built for people with disabilities in mind so they can get around more conveniently.

Prior to Mayor Emanuel's new ordinance, Chicago had 92 wheelchair accessible vehicles. As of today, there are 139.
