If you are considering reducing your carbon footprint, selecting a more sustainable transportation mode is definitely the direction to take. Consider an Electric Vehicle. Many manufacturers have not yet come to market with an Electric Vehicle or EV. EV’s are significantly more efficient and produce less greenhouse gases. Typically, the downside to owning an Electric vehicle has been the selection as well as the limited availability of charging stations. Ontario is embracing Electric Vehicle technology and is taking steps to make the switch simpler and more convenient. With enhancing the availability of fast charging stations throughout Ontario communities, Ontario roads will see an increase in Electric or Electric Hybrid vehicles going forward.
Ontario's Green Licence Plate Program
Your green licence plate is a sign of your commitment to a cleaner Ontario. Vehicles with green licence plates have ongoing access to High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes and no-cost access to High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes on 400-series highways and the QEW, even if there is only one person in the car. HOV lanes are otherwise reserved for vehicles carrying two or more people. HOT lanes are otherwise reserved for single-occupant vehicles with a permit or vehicles carrying two or more people.
