Gotobus.com partnered up with Cambridge non-profit organization, bringing awareness to bus riders
Arlington, Mass – Feb.27, 2019 – Bus-travel search website GotoBus.com recently announced a new partnership with Cambridge local non-profit organization Green Streets Initiative. The endeavor will hopefully inspire more travelers to choose a sustainable way of traveling, especially for the Boston local communities.
Green Streets Initiative holds a Walk/Ride Day each month, asking participants to change their way of commuting for a day, to reflect on the impact of the daily commute on finances, health, and the environment. To boost the awareness of green travel in local communities in the Greater Boston Area, GotoBus.com will be offering promo codes to Green Streets Initiative active members, and raffle prizes to event participants. The upcoming Walk/Ride Day will take place on Friday, March 29 (sign up here).
With the growing trend of eco-friendly commute and green travel, people are more conscious of the carbon emission of daily transportations. According to the 2018 energy report of U.S Energy Information Administration trains and buses consume only 3% of total energy used by the transportation industry. As a leading bus-ticket booking platform in the U.S, GotoBus.com is dedicated to offering consumers affordable and eco-friendly alternatives for inter-city transportations.
To emphasize on the commute by bus, Green Streets Initiative made June Bus Month, during which they will be holding several public events for green travel commuters. A breakfast gathering will take place on June 28, 2019, at the Whole Foods Market in Somerville, MA.
The GotoBus.com online booking system, similar to those used by major airlines, makes it easy for travelers to quickly compare bus companies, prices, and pickup/drop-off locations for over 8,000 bus schedules throughout the United States, Mexico, and Canada. GotoBus is the fastest growing gateway for bus travel on the internet today.
