Travelers choose green travel habits

Travelers are going out of their way to travel green according to a recent survey conducted by The GO Group LLC´s Chicago-based ground transportation service provider GO Airport Express serving O´Hare International and Midway airports.

More than 300 travelers were asked to indicate how they traveled “green.” Topping the list at 45% was packing lighter. Forty-two percent say they walk, bike or use public transportation at their destinations; 40% buy and shop local and 39% eat locally sourced food.

Thirty three percent of respondents save on water and energy by reusing their linens at their hotels and 27% participate in the properties´ recycling programs. Just over 20% bring their own water bottles to the airport to fill up after they pass security. Just 14% noted they prefer to stay at “green” hotels.

GO Airport Express provides airport shuttles to and from O´Hare International Airport and Midway Airports, polled travelers nationwide.

One of the oldest companies in Chicago, GO Airport Express traces its founding to 1853 and the Parmelee Transportation Co, which provided a carriage service between Chicago´s railroad stations and the downtown hotels.

The GO Group, LLC is a one-stop source for door-to-door airport shuttle services. Its members transport some 13m passengers to and from airports in the United States, Mexico, Canada and Europe annually.
