Carpooling in a hyrbrid

Not quite as environmentally friendly as walking or riding a bicycle, but carpooling 4 people in a hybrid vehicle sure beats driving solo in an SUV. Three co-workers and I fit comfortably inside a hybrid Prius for an afternoon lunch outing yesterday. The car had lots of acceleration, it was comfortable, and was very very quiet. The on-board rear view video display, Bluetooth wireless technology for hands free cell phone calls, GPS navigation system, and a computer gadget that monitors energy consumption were all really cool too. But the big bonus is greater fuel economy and less emissions. Divide that by the four people in the car and you have yourself a great environmental alternative to the solo car driver.
