Instead of hailing a yellow cab, try one of the new green taxi limo services, and let the hybrid do the driving.
That's Kate Bosworth standing next to her green Prius limo pre-awards show, before getting dressed.
Here are some eco-friendly car services to try:
PlanetTran in Boston and San Francisco
(888) PLNT TRN
Eco-Limo in Los Angeles, San Francisco,and D.C.
(888) 4 ECO LIMO
OzoCar in New York City
Green Cab in San Francisco
My favorites are still the shiny black, high-mpg Prius hybrids. The Eco-Limo driver who drove me to LAX last week had chauffeured one of the biggest stars to the Oscars so I felt in good hands. A tip: program these numbers into your phone because you just never know.
Cities like New York and San Francisco are also gradually transitioning their taxi fleets to hybrids. This helps the air and the climate - and the cab drivers love it because they don't have to spend all of their money on gas!
So pimp your green ride and support the planet in style.
