Last May, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg mandated that each of the city's 13,500 taxi cabs be fit with hybrid engines by 2012, a significant element of his air pollution reduction effort.

Now, the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission has begun the distribution of a Request for Information seeking reimagined designs of the staid, yellow autos of old.
