GotoBus Making Joint Effort with Green Streets Initiative for Sustainability

Gotobus.com partnered up with Cambridge non-profit organization, bringing awareness to bus riders.

 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 ways of commute for a day. As a result, commuters can reflect on the impact of the daily commute on finances, health, and the environment. As their most recent retail partner, GotoBus.com will be offering promo codes to Green Street Initiative active members. Starting from today, participants of Walk/Ride Day can receive a 5% off discount on bus tickets from New York to Boston.  The upcoming Walk/Ride Day will take place on Friday, March 29 (sign up here). 

Green Streets Walk/Ride Day Celebration

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 daily commute by bus, Green Streets Initiative made June Bus Month, during which they will hold 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.
