New York City Taxi & Limousine Commissioner Matthew Daus (3rd from right) and Sanitation Commissioner John Doherty (left) pose with cast members of the off-Broadway musical "Stomp'" as part of a public service video. And in his newsletter, Daus also updated readers on the 25 MPG rule enforcement for taxis (and soon for black car operators):

"I am also pleased to mention that we have continued to stay in touch with auto manufacturers and that our confidence in the availability of vehicles capable of complying with our new fuel efficiency standards remains high. We are also aware that many taxi operators have heeded our encouragement to plan ahead and have wisely ordered their hybrid-electric vehicles well in advance to ensure a steady and ample supply. Considering the interest that has been demonstrated in this program by other major taxi towns, a number of which have already either passed similar ordinances or are in various planning stages of doing so, I must say that my enthusiasm has only grown as we approach the October 1 effective date."
