Say it ain't so Mike...the city taxi of the future contract was awarded to Nissan. Public tax dollars will be given to a auto plant in Mexico where workers who earn $1 an hour, will make the new taxi which is NOT handicap friendly. Meanwhile, Karsan, who unconditionally pledged to build a $100 Million assembly plant in Brooklyn and employ 800 New Yorkers to build the new handicap friendly taxi was told to take a hike. Karsan's model was given a 65% approval rating from the NYC TLC. I guess this is Mayor Mike's way of wishing Mexico a Happy Cinco de Mayo - with our tax dollars. Great job Mike.
