Gem & Mineral show going green

Posted: Updated:

The Green Shuttle powered by natural gas will start tomorrow. The two shuttles will hold about 13 people in each one. They will run from 8am to 5pm and the goal is to have them come around to each stop every 15 to 30 minutes. They will start at the Tucson Convention Center and go to Cushing Street and back around.

Representatives from the Gem and Mineral Show approached Tucson Clean Cities Manager Colleen Crowninshield about adding the green shuttle. Crowinshield said, "This is the first time the gem show has asked us for clean shuttles, which is showing us that the word is getting out and this is just our way of helping out."

The shuttle is free, just look for the green shuttle signs. The plan is to eventually expand the route and add more green shuttles.
