New York City's Taxi and Limousine Commission re-approved the "Taxi of Tomorrow" project today. The project hit a snag last month when the state supreme court ruled the taxis violated a city law requiring cab owners to have a hybrid option.  
Thirteen-thousand of the new Nissan designed cabs are expected to replace the city's current fleet by 2018. TLC commissioner David Yassky says the "Taxi of Tomorrow" is big step forward for NYC cab service.
