More than 100,000 people have toured Ottawa in celebrity style, chauffeured in a Hollywood Limousine luxury vehicle. Per its name, Hollywood’s fleet centers on limos, such as the 18-passenger stretch Hummer or the 24-seat Le Club, both outfitted with disco flooring and lighting ideal for dancing or rhythmically buckling and unbuckling your seatbelt. For smaller outings, patrons can ride in classic cars, such as the 1974 Excalibur convertible, or the 1958 Bentley. The service’s reliable drivers specialize in chauffeuring for special occasions, ferrying groups ranging from wedding and prom parties to corporate outings.
Ottawa Segway Tours outfits sightseers with versatile Segway personal transporters, or PTs, for earth-friendly jaunts powered by drivers merely shifting their weight. Operators can easily manoeuvre their vehicles wherever their body tells it to—including indoors—avoiding such urban headaches as expensive parking lots, rush-hour traffic, and on-ramps riddled with dangerous slip ‘n slides. While enjoying the sights and sounds of their chosen path, users can take comfort in their low carbon footprint, both because they’re standing off the ground and because electric Segways give off zero emissions during operation.
Capital Junk's three step approach to junk removal helps people save room while working toward saving the environment. Uniformed, licensed, and insured movers haul away trash, old appliances, unwanted furniture, and electronics from homes, load them into their GMC C5500 dump trucks, and sweep up any residual debris. They then donate or recycle more than 75% off the disposed items so that they don't end up in landfills or empty floors of the Empire State Building. Capital Junk's We Are Green page celebrates the fact that the company has diverted more than 89 tons of waste from landfills and that it also runs its trucks on carbon neutral fuel.
Thanks to things like email and e-books, the prefix “e” has come to generally mean an intangible internet good. The folks at Green Pedal e-Scooters, however, know what it actually stands for.

The vehicles provide an ideal means of local transport, without adversely impacting the environment.
Though their location hasn't changed since 1971, the technicians at Auto Sound Systems Inc. take pride in keeping up with advanced technologies. Drawing on an inventory of the latest automotive accessories, they reinvigorate rides from bumper to bumper with custom sound systems, window tints, and rearview cameras that help drivers avoid the embarrassment of a crooked license plate.
A developer and distributor of powersports, utility, and recreational vehicles, Chironex brings the MadAss 125 ($3499) to Canadian riders through a joint venture with German brand Sachs Bikes International. The motorcycle's design pays homage to Sachs' more than 125-year heritage, sporting a naked look that does away with fairings and plastic parts in favor of durable, school-bus-jumping construction, weighing in at a stout 220 pounds. Specs start with 125cc four-stroke motor with electric start that can reach 90 km/h, coupled with a four-speed foot-shifting manual transmission. The frame holds a five-litre integral tank, enough fuel to set up to 100 kilometres worth of road ablaze before turning around and cooling it off with 16" wheels coated in traction-enhancing asphalt aloe.
