Traveling with your friends in a group is stressful enough, but you now have the added wrinkle of eco friendliness to contend with. It can be easy to let environmental concerns fall by the wayside in the short term, but suffice it to say that your failure to adhere to global standards will come back to haunt you in the long run once the devastating effects of climate change wreak havoc all around the world in some way, shape or form. Hence, it’s better to be safe rather than to be sorry, which is why you need to be sure that your transportation solution for your group trip is eco friendly at any given point in time.
There’s a lot of healthy debate surrounding which large scale transportation mechanism suited to the needs of traveling groups is the most eco friendly option available, but we would say that the humble coach bus takes the cake. A big part of the reason why that is the case has to do with the fact that coach buses can transport a vast number of people, yet it doesn’t use all that much more fuel than an average vehicle.
If you compare traveling in a coach to everyone traveling in their own personal cars, you will notice that these buses will generate less than ten percent of the carbon footprint. This is mostly due to how it can get everyone to travel within a single vehicle that operates on just one fuel tank. It’s quite clear that these buses need to be used far more often, since our desire for individual travel is bringing our planet to the bring of catastrophe and if we don’t act soon it may just push us over the edge.
