NYC Approves Ford Transit Connect Taxi


The New York Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) has approved the Ford Transit Connect Taxi for use in the city, joining Boston, Chicago and Philadelphia as approved locations for the vehicles.

The Transit Connect Taxi comes standard with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gas engine and automatic transmission, but Ford also offers engine-prep packages that allow conversions to CNG and LPG.

The first Transit Connect Taxi was delivered last December to a taxicab company in Boston. Since then, more than 100 have been sold to companies in Los Angeles, Chicago, Las Vegas, St. Louis and Orlando, Fla.
