Hi Blog Readers,
The ecoShuttle Blog has taken an extended hiatus due to the fact that we’ve been very busy! We have updated our fleet with some new additions, while some of our old standbys have sadly been retired. One such bus, known fondly as the 17-passenger, has said its last goodbyes after nearly 5 years with ecoShuttle. The 17-passenger was a good, reliable, spirited 450 Ford cut-away shuttle. 17 always had room for luggage, and even went out of its way to accommodate those confined to a wheelchair. 17-passenger; cheers to you, may you rest in peace.
I’ll have specs and pictures of our new additions in next week’s blog.
Moving on, ecoShuttle is happy to support Clean Fuels Now. Clean Fuels Now brings together businesses and forward-thinking Oregonians who support a transition to cleaner, homegrown fuels for the benefit of Oregon’s economy and environment. Like ecoShuttle, Clean Fuels Now is committed to ending the reign of big oil and its devastating effects on our environment and our economic future. Clean Fuels Now is currently working to pro-long legislation passed in 2009 that forced a statewide shift to locally produced, lower-carbon fuels. It would also establish a trading system for fuel suppliers that don’t want to blend in ethanol to invest in green energy instead. If you care about green jobs in Oregon, or about kicking big oil to the curb, it’s worth checking out their website: http://cleanfuelsnow.com/
I’ll be back soon with more ecoShuttle blog action, have a great weekend!
