Why It’s Good for the Environment to Travel by Charter Bus!
Okay, so you’re planning a trip with a group of friends and you already know many of the great reasons to take a charter bus instead of getting behind the wheel of your own car:
- You can turn the trip into pure relaxation, as you won’t have to check a map, fight traffic or jockey for a parking space everywhere you go.
- If you are so inclined, you can enjoy adult beverages as you travel
- You’ll enjoy the camaraderie of all your friends, catching up on everything that’s going on in your lives
- You’ll get to build and maintain a sense of community throughout your trip
But there’s another great reason for choosing a charter bus for your mode of travel—it’s one of the kindest ways to treat the planet when you drive. With a charter bus rental from BusRental.com, you’ll do your part to ensure that our nation’s wild spaces and oxygen-rich natural resources are there for your children and your children’s children.
The Data is In—Going Charter is Going Green!!
When you choose to travel by charter bus, you’re substituting one vehicle for all of those that would be driven by passengers individually. According to research, however, while a charter bus may not have the miles per gallon of a passenger vehicle, it actually performs much better than cars, trucks and even commuter trains when it comes to the total number of passenger miles per gallon. With a charter bus, you can expect a little over 200 passenger miles per gallon of gas used. Compare that to the average passenger miles per gallon of passenger vehicles in the United States—27.2 miles. An airplane typically does better than that, with approximately 44 passenger miles per gallon of fuel. Even a commuter train, with just 92 passenger miles per gallon, can’t come close to a bus.
Here’s another way to look at it. Studies show that a charter bus has approximately the same CO2 emissions as four passenger vehicles. If you have 40 people traveling on your charter bus, and you assume and average of two passengers traveling together (you’ll have some individuals and some families), that’s still 20 vehicles on the road, the equivalent of five charter buses.
I know what you’re thinking—you drive a hybrid, so you won’t have the same carbon emissions of a combustion engine. According to a study conducted by the Union of Concerned Scientists, though, a person owning a hybrid will cut carbon emissions in half by taking a bus.
