The recession has hit many small businesses, but business is booming for environmentally friendly taxi firm, GOGREENCAR. Owners David Peters, Business Studies ’01, and Andrew Laughlan, Multimedia Technology ’02, have seen an increase in clientele over the last year as Senior Executives and Managing Directors have moved away from their high-end chauffeured limousines to a more eco-friendly hybrid alternative. The taxi firm, based in heart of London, has seen its fleet of hybrid Toyota Prius’s grow from 5 to 40 in a space of 18 months and are still adding new vehicles every month. “The current economic downturn has been good to us” said Andrew. “We are competitively priced and as blue chip companies cut back on spending we are the and environmentally friendly alternative.” The firm looks capitalise on the current economic climate by helping more businesses and residents across London reduce their carbon footprint, through their new eco-friendly vehicles.
