Here’s are some environmental coach travel facts:

  • Just one coach-load of people can keep up to 50 cars off the roads.
  • 56% of carbon dioxide emissions come from cars & taxis, just 3% come from buses & coaches.
  • For coach, average carbon dioxide emissions per passenger per journey are around 1.5 times lower than rail, 5 times lower than air and 6 times lower than car travel.
  • Just a 15% increase in coach passenger journeys by British people each year could lead to approximately 47 million fewer cars on the road, saving over a quarter of a million tonnes of carbon dioxide and significantly reducing congestion.
  • Coaches transport around 600,000 children to school every day.
