I am going to start tipping hybrid cab drivers double.
I saw my first yellow Ford Escape hybrid yesterday (actually I saw two) and decided that there ought to be some way to encourage their adoption. Since you can’t really choose your cabs very specifically, I came up with the tip idea. Since most of my rides are in the $15 and under category, this will only cost me an extra buck here and there. I feel like if drivers hear about this, they are going to be asking their cab management companies for them and definitely if they own their own cab, they’ll be encouraged to upgrade maybe a little sooner than they otherwise would.
As only one person doing this, I’m unlikely to really affect change, but paraphrasing Arlo Guthrie
And can you, can you imagine fifty people a day, I said
fifty people a day
walking in singin a bar of Alice’s Restaurant andtipping their hybrid drivers an extra buck.
And friends they may thinks it’s a movement.
So who’s in?
