Melbournes Skybus
Im consistently impressed with the bus service from Southern Cross Station to Tullamarine airport and I note that they are now claiming a first for public transport: offsetting their annual greenhouse gas emissions by planting 5,488 trees per year through Greenfleet. The Skybus tree planting is part of the Murray Darling Rescue Project, co-ordinated by Scouts Australia and Greenfleet. Further, their vehicles which are easy to access even when burdened with luggage are apparently also operating with low emission engines. Its good to see a transport company taking these initiatives.
