Go Green With Us – Ride The Bus!
Buses use significantly less fuel per passenger and they are able to displace up to 56 cars from the road! Here’s the math: Let’s say that you drive (alone) from A to B and use 20 litres of fuel. A bus makes the same trip with 56 people on board and used 280 litres of fuel. Each person on the bus has used only 5 litres of fuel.
It’s about more than just a footprint. Taking a bus also makes our planet much more – GREEN!
- On average a bus emits 60% less C02 into the air than a standard mid-sized car; 54% less than a passenger train and 86% less than a commercial airliner!
- The ultra low-sulfur diesel fuel used exclusively on buses burns cleaner than the regular unleaded, resulting in up to 20% less green house gas emissions being released into the atmosphere!
How Else Can Bus Operators Be GREEN?
That’s where FLEETSMART comes in…. Fleetsmart is a volunteer program offered by Natural Resources Canada that most Operators participate in. Using Fleetsmart principals Operators can reduce exhaust emissions which contribute to smog, acid rain and global warming. This is done by training drivers to use strategies in their driving habits such as reduce idling time, not speeding and checking tire inflation. Another way Operators can reduce emissions is by using computer software that efficiently plans trips by limiting the amount of deadhead or wasted travel.
