Limo Hire Midlands...

There is more and more attention being paid to the state of our environment as we are now seeing the affects of abusing our surroundings with greenhouse gases and are therefore being encouraged to do something about it to stem the flow of toxic gas and waste into our environment.

A major part of the environment campaign has been reducing the pollution from our vehicles. We are encouraged to car pool or take public transport to reduce the number of cars on the roads.

However, limousine hire companies can not reduce the number of their cars which are on the roads as they would go out of business. They are therefore looking at ways to make their existing limousine fleets more environmentally friendly.

This can be done in many ways, for example, there are a number of new hybrid limousines being released which run partially on electricity, however, many of these vehicles are expensive to buy and take a long time to chare up.

An alternative to electric cars at present is natural gas instead of petrol or diesel. While natural gas conversions and natural gas limousines are also more expensive, Regal Limousine Service in the US has received funds from their federal government to subsidise their purchase of a fleet of natural gas limousines.

Regal Limousine Service is the first limo hire company in North Hampton to be awarded the grant and the new natural gas limousines will be used for the high traffic runs to and from the airport.

The change over process is not instant however, and will be implemented over a two year period. This is to do with the government regulations and paperwork, as well as the fact that the manufacturers of the natural gas limousines - Ford - do not run a continuous production of the vehicles.

So while we are all trying to do our part for the environment, it is nice to know that big business cares too. For more information about hiring an environmentally friendly limousine in your area, contact Limo Hire Birmingham now.
