its entire local fleet of cabs from gasoline lo natural gas Tlie announcement was made in Pasadena by John D Clark vice president of the local low Cab Co The move cerlain to be hailed by clean air proponents and environmentalists will in- volve 81 Yellow Cab vehicles which operate in Pasadena Glendale Burbank San Marino and adjacent areas en of the cabs are assigned to Pasadena alone The installation of the new machinery which will allow the cabs about a range on natural gas will start in Pasadena within the next three months at the and the entire fleet will be converted within six months The Yellow Cab Co is ing the change-over because of the environmental advantages also partly because it results in lower operating expenses and partly because of new strict laws which by 1975 could result in operating hardships on taxi cahs not equipped with re- quired devices In announcing the plans to make the changes with the Pasadena taxi cab fleet Clark said that a few cabs are being Ihus converted in the Santa Monica and West Los Angeles area now in fact a few are on the street so converted to the large switch-over in Pasadena One of the problems to have to work out is a storage ty that will allow the cabs to go farther than 120 said Clark Temporarily we will be allowing these natural gas cabs to switch over to gasoline after their natural gas supply is used up The switching is automatic The driver has no control over it We are hoping lhat time in the future there will be more public natural gas filling Clark said that one of the reasons for assigning a priority lo fleet for mass conversion was fact that smog is traditionally worse in Pasadena West San Gabriel Valley area In Los Angeles a study into possibility of converting county fleet vehicles lo gas was ordered
