By its very design, the motor coach embodies transportation efficiency and energy conservation.Below are some statistics provided by the American Bus Association you should be aware of:
1 Motorcoach use can remove up to 55 cars from the road.
Motorcoaches produce carbon emissions of only 56 grams per passenger, compared to 371 grams for a passenger car.
Motorcoaches use 946 BTUs per passenger mile, compared to 3,890 for planes and 2,134 for trains.
Motorcoaches produce the equivalent of 250 passenger miles per gallon of fuel. A Motorcoach with only seven passengers is more fuel efficient than an automobile with one occupant.
Motorcoaches emit the least carbon dioxide (CO2) per passenger mile when compared to other vehicles. Carbon dioxide emissions are reduces by an average of 85% per passenger mile for every person who chooses motorcoach travel instead of driving alone.
Motorcoaches currently provide 184 passenger miles per gallon (MPG), more than double the second most fuel-efficient sector, commuter rail at 86 passenger MPG. Transit buses achieve 32 passenger MPG, domestic air carriers achieve 42 passenger MPG, and single passenger automobiles achieve 28 passenger MPG.
Diesel fuel is about 30% more efficient in combustion than gasoline, and today’s ultra low-sulfur diesel fuels are cleaner than ever.
