Happy Earth Day!
Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the need to lower their carbon footprint, and Earth Day is a day that reminds people to do their part to go green. This week, you’ll receive a great deal of information about how to reduce your energy consumption and ways to lower greenhouse emissions. An easy way to accomplish both is traveling by bus, the most environmentally friendly mode of transportation.
While you look for opportunities to make a difference, Greyhound reminds you that by riding the bus, you are doing your part to help the environment. Greyhound is dedicated to the environment and has made major improvements to its new fleet. For example:
- The new bus has been designed with the latest emissions-lowering technology, creating more fuel-efficient engines, which in turn reduces pollution.
- A Greyhound bus carrying an average load achieves 162 passenger miles per gallon and can take up to 50 cars off the road daily. Whereas a single car carrying an average load achieves only 36 passenger miles per gallon.
- Buses are known for reducing congestion, which also means less air pollution.
- Greyhound continues to exceed EPA standards with regard to carbon emissions and other poisonous gases.
Providing a more Earth-friendly mode of transportation is an inherent part of the Greyhound brand. So the next time you plan to take a trip, keep in mind that not only are buses a safer, more affordable and more convenient form of travel, but it also offers a simple way to achieve a greener lifestyle.
