The Best of BUSRide Green Awards
GO, which began with the Bast family and Riteway Bus Service over 55 years and three generations ago, currently employs 900 people at 13 locations throughout Wisconsin. Its fleet of motor coaches, shuttle buses and vans, limo coaches, limousines, executive sedans and school buses ranks among the greenest coach operations in North America, repeatedly recognized for its environmentally sensitivity and best practices to reduce emissions and fuel consumption.
The company has been working diligently since 2008 to green the fleet and operations, implementing practices and procedures that ranged from idling reduction policies to retrofitting and acquiring new equipment, as well as honing all operations to fit with green policies. According to GO Riteway President Ron Bast, one of the most recent steps in the sustainability effort has been to convert its airport shuttle fleet to propane autogas. By 2013, GO Riteway expects to put 30 vehicles into service that feature either propane autogas or hybrid technology.
