Chicago Couple Goes Green With Hybrid, Flex Fuel Fleet

Posted on August 23, 2010

A life-changing event gives a local couple the incentive to go green, and they want to take you with them.

CHICAGO -- She says she has always been kind to the environment. He, on the other hand -- not so much. But the husband and wife duo say they are now committed to making this a cleaner planet by greening your airport commute.

No, it's not a fleet of stretch limos. There is just one, and it only goes out by special request. Going Green Limousine is actually a fleet of hybrid and flex-fuel vehicles used to shuttle passengers to and from the airports and for charter services.

"The Ford Escape is our signature car. It gets around 38 to 40 miles per gallon on the highway," said Jess Sapp of Going Green Limousine. "We put an after-market device on it. It's called the blade. It has a filter that captures some particulate matters that come out. It also helps it to burn cleaner, so we reduce our emissions by about twelve and a half percent."

Jess Sapp and Rebecca Schmuck started their car service just over a year ago and they still run it out of their North Side home.
