If you want to do your bit for the planet, then remember that coach travel is already one of the most sustainable and environmentally friendly forms of transport

 

One coach takes the road space of 4 cars, but can carry as many passengers as 20 cars.

 

Compared to travelling by coach, greenhouse gas emissions per passenger are 6 times higher by car *

… five times higher by plane

 … and 1.5 times higher by train

 

It is estimated that a 15% increase in coach passenger journeys each year could lead to approximately 47 million fewer cars on the road **

* UK Government Greenhouse gas conversion factors, 2020.

** Estimate by Confederation of Passenger Transport, 2021.
