At totalride, we strive to be sustainable throughout all facets of our business. From our fleet of eco-friendly vehicles to solar panels installed at our Corporate Headquarters, we have become an industry leader in green innovation.
As a result of our many green programs and practices, we were selected as one of the “Green Pioneers for 2010” by the Phoenix Business Journal. In 2011, Discount Cab, our on-demand taxi company, was recognized with the “Blue Sky Award” at Valley Metro’s Annual “Champions for Clean Air” Campaign Awards.
totalride creates less pollution and saves more energy than any other company in our industry. Annually, each cab saves an estimated 4,000 gallons of fuel (or 2.5 million gallons across the fleet) and the fleet as a whole prevents over 25,000 tons of carbon dioxide from impacting the environment.
In 2010, totalride took its sustainable practices to the next level by installing a 400-panel rooftop solar energy system at our headquarters. This facility upgrade saves tens of thousands of dollars on electricity and is estimated to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 377 tons per year. The totalride headquarters incorporates energy efficient building techniques such as walls with an R-52 insulation rating, high SEER air conditioning units and energy efficient lighting systems to further bolster the company’s sustainability efforts.
As green innovation leaders in the transportation industry, totalride hopes that others will follow our lead by incorporating sustainable practices in their businesses.
