Time to reboot the Dillo!
If you work, live or play downtown, imagine a fully electric, clean and efficient mode of urban transportation that could be hailed on the street or by a smart phone app day or night.
Electric Cab of Austin has the largest for-hire fleet of NEVs in the nation and currently operates a similar business model but only late at night. The City of Austin & CapMetro should take advantage of this under-utilized resource and work to bring this concept to the daytime market.
In the short term this idea would reduce congestion and our carbon footprint, in the long term it would reduce our over all dependence on cars and be a great complement and value add to our public transit system.
