More green buses, jobs for The Night Move

In The Night Move's little corner of the world, sustainability is king. It's also a profitable venture for the Ferndale-based shuttle service.

The Night Move has grown to eight employees in its first two years of operating an express shuttle for party-goers between the downtowns of Royal Oak, Ferndale and Detroit. It also runs shuttles for special events, such as the recent Kid Rock concerts, and private functions.

"Our niche is doing it environmentally, consciously," says Chris Ramos, owner of The Night Move. "We still run a bio-diesel bus." The company also runs an extensive program for internal recycling and carbon offsets.

All of this new business has allowed The Night Move to expand its fleet to three buses and add a couple of drivers and a full-time sales person last year. It hopes to hire a few more people in 2011, along with adding a few more buses to its fleet.

"We really want to get some corporate services and some daily shuttle service with something like the DMC," Ramos says.
