Incentives for Hybrid Cars

The Boston City Council has proposed new rules that would allow hybrid cars to park for free at city meters. The state is also considering new laws that would provide benefits to owners of hybrid cars. S2220, a bill currently pending, provides several benefits. They include: permission to drive in HOV lanes with only one passenger, free FastLane transponders, and a $2000 tax deduction. Currently, there is a federal tax deduction for hybrid car owners.
