New York City Cabs of the Future?

Over the last few years, New York City has been holding a competition called “Taxi of Tomorrow” with the intent of finding a new design for their city cabs. The New York Times wasn’t too impressed with the competition’s finalists, so they commissioned artist and former Honda R&D guy Steven M. Johnson to create futuristic taxis with mostly practical features. Johnson’s designs include taxis that resemble buses,  a maximum security cab and a taxi with a built in bike tunnel. Check out all of Johnson’s designs in the NYT slide show. If you want to see the real “Taxis of Tomorrow,” go to the competition website.
