Urban transport is an indispensable component for the development of cities, however, the massive use of motorized modes of transport with polluting technologies has generated the non-sustainability of the sector. Colombian cities are no strangers to this problem and as an improvement strategy, the testing and implementation of electric transport technologies is considered as an opportunity for modernization, efficient use of energy, reduction of emissions and energy diversification taking advantage of the energy resources available in Colombia. In Bogotá, the taxi fleet, due to its high energy demand and responsibility in polluting emissions, is a segment where electric vehicles can offer benefits to the operator, the citizen and the city. A description of Bogota's taxi fleet, the presentation of electric vehicle technology and a comparison between a gasoline vehicle and an equivalent electric vehicle in regular operation are presented, as well as some results from the pilot's early years. The technology has demonstrated reliability and efficiency, benefits to drivers and significant savings in greenhouse gases, but requires new incentives for massification.
