The leading D.C. chauffeured transportation company rounds out its comprehensive green approach with 14 new green vehicles.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - International Limousine Service, Inc., the largest privately held chauffeured transportation provider in Washington, D.C., recently added $2 million worth of new Hybrid buses, sedans and FlexFuel SUVs to its fleet of 120 vehicles. The replacement vehicles include eight bio-diesel/hybrid mini-buses, three Royale Fusion Hybrid Ls, and three GMC flex-fuel Suburbans.

This is just one of many investments ILS has made toward sustainability, and toward ensuring that corporate travel managers have a "green" chauffeured transportation option to comply with their environmental travel mandates.

Richard P. Kane, president and CEO of International Limousine Service and past president of the National Limousine Association, said, "From the types of vehicles we purchase, to the type of fuel we put in them, we are proud to be the local choice for a healthier mode of transportation. If you have to go somewhere, go green."

In addition to the new hybrid vehicles, International Limousine purchases biodiesel fuel to power all of its diesel fleet, a claim no other private charter carrier in the D.C. area can make. The company also updates its fleet continuously to ensure use of the latest automotive technology to attain the most efficient and environmentally-friendly vehicles.
