More and more people are choosing motor coaches as their preferred mode of travel. Every year, there are roughly 751 million passenger trips, which is more than commercial airlines provide during some years.
In addition to choosing a rental motor coach for sightseeing and charter tours, people are realizing these vehicles are a reliable form of transportation to the airport. Furthermore, chartered bus services are also an excellent choice for commuters and for scheduled trips to specific locales.
In addition to the ease, comfort, and convenience of traveling on a charter bus, there are other benefits of bus travel. Charter bus travel makes the following positive environmental impacts:
- Reduces congestion
- Reduces energy use
- Reduces emissions
Were you aware that when a motor coach is full, roughly 55 cars are removed from the highway? Motor coaches also make a more efficient use of fuel as demonstrated by these recent figures:
- Motor coaches: 206.6 passenger miles per gallon
- Commuter rail: 92.4 passenger miles per gallon
- Domestic airplanes: 44 passenger miles per gallon
- Single-passenger cars: 27.2 passenger miles per gallon
- Hybrid cars: 46 passenger miles per gallon
- Transit buses: 31.4 passenger miles per gallon
When compared with other forms of transportation, motor coaches also emit the least amount of carbon dioxide per passenger mile. They are three times more efficient with reducing CO2 emissions than commuter rails, and six times more efficient with reducing these emissions than transit buses.
Traveling by a rental motor coach is also more convenient. There are actually more motor coach terminals than airport, bus, and intercity rail terminals. This is particularly important in rural areas that don’t have access to other types of public transportation.
Choosing to travel by motor couch also benefits the local economy and provides jobs. When a single motor coach is parked at a destination, it can help to generate up to $11,660 in meals, lodging, and other types of spending.
Furthermore, due to the growing demand for motor coach travel, there is an increased demand for related goods and services. When combined with motor coach sales and industry equipment, approximately 792,700 people are being employed within this industry.
The next time you plan a trip to visit family and friends, participate in an educational or leisure tour, or need a reliable ride to the airport, choose a rental couch bus. You will be able to relax in a reclining seat, use Wifi, and when traveling with colleagues, have access to a mobile conference room.
