Go Green, Celebrate Earth Day by riding a Motorcoach

Earth day is April 22nd and we can all do our part in helping our environment by going Green. One way to go Green is to get out of our cars and into a motorcoach. That’s right the Motorcoach industry is very “Green”. Motorcoaches are green when drivers become passengers and when equipment is designed to run clean. The result is a reduction of emissions and crowding of highways. Go Green, Go Motorcoach ! Save A Penguin. Take a Motorcoach

Besides operating a charter bus service, Riteway also provides daily commuter express service from Washington County to Milwaukee County. The Washington County Commuter Express (WCCE) is the perfect alternative to driving a car to downtown Milwaukee for work. Come ride the WCCE bus and sit back, relax, and read the morning paper as you ride the bus to work. Visit www.ridewcce.com for more information.

  • Each motorcoach has the potential of removing 55 autos from the highway. That’s millions of cars not driven annually, saving fuel, cutting emissions and reducing congestion.
  • Motorcoaches produce carbon emissions of only 56 grams per passenger, compared to 371 grams for a passenger car.
  • Diesel fuel is about 30% more efficient in combustion than gasoline, and today’s ultra low-sulfur diesel fuels are cleaner than ever.
  • Motorcoaches use 946 BTUs per passenger mile, compared to 3,890 for planes and 2,134 for trains.
  • Motorcoaches emit the least carbon dioxide (CO2) per passenger mile when compared to other vehicles. Carbon dioxide emissions are reduced by an average of 85% per passenger mile for every person who chooses motorcoach travel instead of driving alone.

  1. I don’t think people even realize how earth friendly coaches can be…taking multiple passengers is the way to go!

  2. The amenities on a coach are also a benefit. Imagine being able to read the morning paper, listen to your favorite songs AND sip a cup of coffee and not worry a wit about the traffic around you!! Coaches, buses, etc. are the transport of the future.
