Our Green Fleet
In an effort to help protect the environment by reducing the amount of greenhouse gases emitted into the air, Finger Lakes Winery Tours and FitzGerald Brother’s have initiated the first “Green Fleet” in the region for touring and transportation. The Green Fleet has all the options that make travel safe, comfortable, fun and helps the environment. Going Green has just become a lot more fun!
