Marty Urges Brooklyn Built Taxi

On May 1, BP Marty Markowitz was joined by representatives from Karsan USA, elected officials and disability and transportation advocates for a press conference at Borough Hall to call for the selection of Karsan as the manufacturer of New York City’s “Taxi of Tomorrow.”  

While the potential factory will not be in Brooklyn Heights, we thought that folks might have some thoughts on which if any of the new cars should be selected.

Karsan is pledging to locate a manufacturing facility at the South Brooklyn Marine Terminal in Sunset Park, potentially bringing hundreds of new jobs to Brooklyn. A prototype of Karsan’s entry in the “Taxi of Tomorrow” competition—the V1—was also be on display in Borough Hall/Columbus Park Plaza.
