'A new way to roll in Town Center'
Grogan's Mill resident Sara Bissig is the proud owner of The Woodlands first ever electric taxi.
Business was brisk this summer, but since this is an open air vehicle, hours were limited to the evenings when it's a little cooler outside. Now that fall is nearly here, Bissig is ready to shuttle folks from their office to their restaurant of choice within The Woodlands.
"It's an all-electric car, the breezes are blowing, and people are loving it... it has a fun factor, like a vacation feel to it," Bissig said. "The car is more than a super-sized golf cart... this baby is road ready."
That means it has the same things as gas-guzzling cars do: a shatterproof windshield, blinkers, headlights and seatbelts. You've got to have a driver's license to drive it, and it's got to be registered and sporting license plates.
The vehicle gets approximately 60 miles per $1 of electricity and is permitted on roads where the speed limit is up to 45 miles per hour. Bissig likes to hold steady at approximately 25 miles per hour.
"Obviously you can't take this thing to downtown Houston," Bissig said.
The fare is $3. To book a ride, call 281-639-9724. read article:
