Last week, we celebrated Earth Week on the blog. Pamela Wolff, the Director of Strategic Alliances and Industry Partnerships for the Motorcoach Council, reached out to share the environmental benefits of traveling by motorcoach.
Today she’s stopping by our blog to answer a few questions about motorcoach travel and how to go green on the road.
1) What’s the environmental impact of traveling by motorcoach?
Motorcoach travel is the most environmentally friendly form of transportation available, the greenest way to travel in North America. Motorcoaches currently provide over 206 passenger miles per gallon of fuel compared to 92 passenger MPG for commuter rail, 44 passenger MPG for domestic air carrier, and 27 MPG for single passenger automobiles. Each motorcoach has the potential to take 55 cars from the road reducing congestion, saving fuel, and cutting emissions.
