Kids Love Limos More than the Environment

Posted on June 17, 2008 by LCT Magazine

BRIGHT LIMO FUTURE? Limousine operators with growing revenue usually go to industry shows to look for minibuses, vans, coaches, SUVs, sedans, hybrids, and alternative-fuel vehicles, but not so much for stretch limousines these days. Teenagers going to proms and other kids out for concerts and nights on the town are not too concerned about getting a green car or a corporate bus. They'll take a  party bus, or a super stretch, or a traditional limo as long as it's packed with blasting audio and bright shining video. So maybe stretch limos aren't going to go away for good. As Ed Kahakauwila, president of LA Limousines in Victoria, British Columbia just told a newspaper reporter, "It's still the splurge for kids. Green just doesn't register."
