Luxury + Sustainability = GreenFleet
startup car service offers Tesla trips between EC, MSP
The United States pumped out 5.4 billion metric tons of CO2 in 2018 alone, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Now, one Chippewa Valley entrepreneur is looking to help reduce this number in the future with his new business, GreenFleet.
“For me, the goal of GreenFleet really is to help advance electric transportation,” said Bill Lobner, the founder and CEO, “and just get the awareness out there. … It’s a lot less expensive and a lot more fun.”

GreenFleet, which officially launches on Sept. 14, offers luxury shuttle services from Eau Claire to Minneapolis in sleek, modern Tesla cars. According to Lobner, not only does the service help the planet, but the all-electric Teslas are also significantly cheaper to operate than standard diesel vehicles.
“It’s going to be a little more upscale,” said driver Bob Williamson. Riders will be offered clean neck pillows, sanitized noise-cancelling headphones, and nonalcoholic beverages with every ride.
At just $50 a ride, these shuttles will take you from the The Lismore Hotel in downtown Eau Claire to the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (or vice versa). You can book your ride at www.greenfleetec.com.
