Charter Buses: The Energy Efficient Way To Travel

U.S carbon dioxide emissions, and particularly those from driving, are a big problem. Driving accounts for 30% of these emissions, and, still, nearly all Americans opt to drive in their personal vehicles — and alone, too. There is a relatively simple solution: Choose charter buses to meet travel and group transportation needs.

Why Go By Bus?

As far as the environment is concerned, the answers are obvious. Charter bus rentals achieve 206.6 passenger miles per gallon; comparatively, a car with one person averages just 27.2 passenger miles per gallon. That’s a big difference! What’s more, coach bus transportation reduces carbon dioxide emissions at three times the rate of train travel. As a whole, traveling by bus can make an incredible difference. “According to the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), public transportation in the United States saves approximately 1.4 billion gallons of gasoline and about 1.5 million tons of carbon dioxide annually,” About News writes.

When Is Coach Bus Transportation Most Convenient?

With the incredible energy-saving potential of coach bus transportation and over 751,000,000 coach bus trips per year, the next reasonable question is: When does it make sense to take a charter or coach bus? And there isn’t just one answer. Charter buses are a great option for travel. These bus services are much cheaper than flying, and it also can even be significantly less expensive than purchasing the required gas when traveling long distances round-trip. Plus, it beats driving hours and hours at a time! Additionally, these services are optimal for group travel. Encourage your child’s school to take advantage of bus services embracing green initiatives, or even consider suggesting charter buses as an energy efficient means of travel for faraway work training programs or conferences.

The truth remains that single-passenger cars are not at all environmentally friendly. Whenever possible, opt for green charter bus services for long distance and/or group travel.
