It seems some enterprising youth has some up with a great idea to get Pepsi to give them $50,000. It’s simple really: Convert buses to run on vegetable oil and then run them from NYC to nearby ski resorts so “the thousands of inner city youth that cannot afford to go to ski/snowboard can now go on day trips with their friends for cheap!!” In fact, it’s such a good idea, we can’t believe no one’s ever thought of it before. Oh wait.
So for the record, The Portland Grease Bus has been up and running for a couple years now, andÂ is not in any way affiliated with this Grease Bus NYC project. Not to be a Debbie Downer, or anything, because it’s hard not to want to support it (and we do!) But geez, they could have at least come up with an original name. If you want to help the unnamed Grease Bus NYC founders get Pepsi’s money, go vote for them. If you want more info on the OG Grease Bus, visit greasenotgas.com and greasebus.com
