Green Taxi Service, Green Tomato Cars Makes Waves in the UK

October 23rd, 2009 by  

Every industry is taking steps to adopt greener methods, and it’s become particularly important in businesses that provide transportation services to consumers because this is what people are looking for. Even if they can’t take big steps to make their own homes and businesses cleaner, they can help reduce their carbon footprint by making wiser environmental decisions. In order to address this shift in environmental perception and need, companies like the Green Tomato Cars Taxi Service in the UK are marketing their businesses to the more environmentally conscientious.

The Green Tomato Cars is an affordable option for those who are in need of a transportation service. They don’t charge more than a traditional taxi for their services, but their fleet is made up of Toyota’s hybrid Prius vehicles. Since naturally, there are still emissions from the vehicles, The Green Tomato Cars participates in double funding offsetting projects in order to reduce their carbon footprint even further both for their corporation and for their clients.

The Green Tomato Cars has already proven that they’re ready to be cutting-edge in terms of their business plan, and they’ve embraced another modern trends, using Twitter as a way for commuters and others in need of transportation services to book their cabs.

    The majority of taxis in Vancouver are Prius, or if not, other small efficient cars like Corolla. This has been the case for at least the two years that I have lived here. There are also larger vans to assist wheelchair passengers.
