Go Green, Celebrate Earth Day by riding a Motorcoach

April 14, 2008

April 13th 2008

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.

Live from UMA Motorcoach Expo

January 18, 2008

January 17, 2008 and day 1 is finished at the UMA Motorcoach Expo!  Attended some good seminars today about various motorcoach topics.  In the morning session we heard from Mark from the Chairmen at the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board). The NTSB investigates accidents around the country and then makes recommendations to ultimately help prevent accidents in the future.  These recommendations help make regulatory changes, operating changes and  manufacturing changes related to the country’s transportation system.

The next presenter was Dave Hugel from the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration).  He talked about several important issues related towards studying motorcoach fatigue and studying crashes of motorcoaches in a control study.   -rj

Live from the UMA Motorcoach Expo

January 17, 2008

I’m currently in San Franciso at the 2008 UMA Motorcoach Expo. Besides riding the trolly cars and going to Fisherman’s Warf we will be spending the next few days looking and talking motorcoaches! I know it doesn’t sound exciting to you, but that is what we do, at least for a couple hours and then go back to sight seeing! But really, if you care about motorcoach safety, motorcoach technolgy, motorcoach tours, motorcoach regulations or just like looking at cool motorocoaches the UMA Motorcoach Expo is the place to be. Some of the highlights this week will be MCI’s 75th celebration, going to the motorcoach seminars regarding the newest trends in the motorcoach industry and of coarse going across the Golden Gate Bridge. -rj
