Greenr Cabs in Malta
All taxicabs are fully electric and the EV does not emit any gases while on the move. The primary benefit of this concept is to create a transport system that does no harm to the environment while serving its clients. A single car driving 60,000 km every year, like other typical cabs, will emit roughly 6 tons of carbon dioxide. Moreover, diesel engines give off carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides with other harmful particles that coat our lungs.

Greenr cabs work only with electric cars so no harmful emission of gases can occur. Apart from being a green taxi service, the transport system strives to provide maximum comfort to its customers. All passengers can access a Wi-Fi internet access so they do not miss out anything while they are traveling. To add more comfort, there is also a tablet at disposal in every Greenr cab so passengers can listen to their own music by plugging their phone into the Hi-Fi system. The company proudly claims to offer a travelling experience with zero empty time.

The eco-friendly taxi business also announced its partnership with Green Malta Project, which is a reputed and trusted name praised for its recycling efforts. The project supports and encourages people to keep all plastic bottles and accessories in the car to donate them for recycling. This has greatly helped cab passengers to not litter the streets when they are traveling. also offers a discount to their passengers for all bottles that they save for recycling (one eco-point for each bottle).
