Copenhagen taxis to go green

Posted by Melissa Greathouse

The city of Copenhagen claims to be one of the greenest cities in the world and now it wants its taxis to go green.

Known for its progressiveness, city officials are pushing for local taxis to become more environmentally friendly.

Not everyone agrees with the move. The current company that runs the city's taxis is against the move, saying that it would be too expensive.

However, the city has earmarked funds for a pilot project to use alternative fuels and other energy-saving devices in taxis.

Copenhagen has reduced its carbon emissions in the city 25 percent since 1990.
