The red-and-white limo


Funny story a couple days ago on the Change Marketing blog about a group of local high school graduates who chartered an OC Transpo hybrid bus--the red and white limousine--to get to their prom at the end of the school year. And, with the cost spread out over the 25 or so riders, it only worked out to about $12 per person--cheaper, and better for the environment than your conventional limousine.

Charter services is one of a few non-standard revenue generators for OC Transpo. Not sure what percentage of their actual income is resultant from it (I'd wager it's a small percentage), but occasionally you'll come across these types of things--people chartering a bus for a wedding, or a prom, or any other special events. Good for the travellers, good for the environment, and good for public transit? Fine by me.

Unless of course the sent a older bus out on a route that the Hybrid one should have been on. Then by having this low emission bus just sitting around waiting while these kids party might have actually done more damage than good.

Now if the bus would have been otherwise sitting around then it's great.

It is really cool to know that there are different vehicles that are being used to a different event or adventure you want to have. It can be in land, air or water there will always be an appropriate transportation mode you can use.limousine rental

It's a beautiful limousine which reminded me the Mississauga Limo Service. Its' good to go on a ride with pals occasionally like prom, wedding and bachelor parties. Good to visit your site. Hope all of them had a good ride in white red limousine.

The instant messages that are sent to a telephone are called SMS messages. SMS is an acronym, which remains for "short message administration".

This is a fork of vanpop's CPT Descriptions module. In any case, the best way to "redesign" from one rendition to the next is physically duplicating and gluing existing portrayals and supplanting capacities in the format records.
