Ecotransportation Rental Operation

1. What is an eco-transportation rental operation?

Tourists looking to get around the place they’re visiting without spending a lot of money on bus tours, cab rides, and trolley fares may seek out their own transportation both to save money and to become more independent in their exploration.  Your company would provide them the solution by renting them bicycles, electric bicycles, electric carts, kayaks, electric boats, or other eco-friendly forms of transportation.

Knowledge of the equipment you’re renting is important.  For example, if you are renting bikes, being able to fix minor problems on those bikes without having to take the bike to a shop or pay a mechanic will help you save a lot of money, time and hassle.  Knowledge of your area, so that you may provide good maps, advice, and options on where to go and what to see will add a lot of value to your offerings.
