green-limoWhen you come to Vegas, you see green all around. There’s the green you win in the casinos. And lots of putting greens.

Now there are green limousines.

Well, really they’re silver. But the 26, 72-inch Lincoln Town Cars are powered by compressed natural gas, one of the cleanest burning alternative fuels available. Natural gas vehicles produce significantly lower emissions, and are more cost-effective than gasoline or diesel.

The fleet was commissioned by the 18-million-square-foot, multi-use project, CityCenter. It was developed by Krystal Enterprises in collaboration with Clean Energy Fuels, BAF Technologies and Ford engineers, and services Aria Resort and Vdara Hotel.

CityCenter hopes to demonstrate a commitment to sustainability and is pursuing the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. In addition to the green limos, guests at CityCenter will  be greeted with preferred parking for green cars and carpoolers.  There will be a bicycle valet service, bicycle storage for residents, rideshare options and dedicated carpool pickup lanes. Employees, meanwhile, will receive a full range of transit, bicycle, green car and carpool options.

In many ways Las Vegas is becoming a green city. Have you heard about our solar powered DJ booth? Click here for more ways to be green in Vegas. Click here to read about some of the other earth-friendly initiatives taken by Las Vegas hotels.
