How Newer Coach Buses are Becoming Environmentally Friendly

When you think “eco-friendly traveling,” you probably don’t immediately think of “coach buses.” But many coach bus companies are taking initiatives to change that, and they’re hoping to make buses the newest way to travel while staying environmentally conscious. Don’t believe us? Check out the list below to see why traveling by charter bus is the best option for anyone who wants to reduce their carbon footprint. 

 

  • Charter buses emit significantly less carbon dioxide, and other harmful gases, than other methods of transportation. Planes, in particular, are extremely harmful to the environment because they emit so much gas into the atmosphere. According to the Tufts Climate Commission, choosing to travel via plane can actually emit seven times more carbon dioxide than traveling on a bus or train.
  • Even just the service provided by a bus — i.e., carrying a bunch of passengers together in one trip — makes travelling by bus a good eco-friendly travel option. When passengers travel together, instead of traveling individually in separate cars, the carbon footprint of each person goes down significantly.


Best of all, you don’t have to sacrifice modern conveniences when you travel by bus. Many newer buses come equipped with wi-fi, have reclining seats, and have a bathroom on board. So if you’re thinking about taking a trip in the near future and haven’t made your travel arrangements yet, check out your local coach bus service and see how you can help the environment, even when you’re on the go!
