New Ride-Sharing Company Set to Go Green In Chicago

By Chris Hayre

Chicago will soon have another option for the environmentally conscious to get around the city.

G-Ride is a new ride-sharing company set to launch this summer. The company will employ a fleet of electric and hybrid cars and has additional plans to create an immersive green experience for its customers. For every ride taken, a tree is planted.

“We’re not concerned about making money here,” said G-Ride founder Stephen Cutter. “We’re concerned about making an impact.”
