In addition to cost savings there are several other good reasons why companies may choose minibus or coach hire as a trusted, reliable and safe means of business travel for their staff, visitors or guests. In particular, use of coach hire for business travel will reduce your company’s environmental impact. In one fell swoop, use of coach hire for staff transport can reduce costs, reduce carbon emissions, improve fuel efficiency, reduce congestion and enhance safety.
Carbon Footprints. Buses and coaches are the cleanest and most carbon-efficient mode of travel. When travelling by bus or coach, your carbon footprint is the smallest of all modes of transport. UK data shows that coaches emit 0.03 kg of CO2 per passenger-kilometre. This is half that of trains and radically smaller than the amount emitted by cars (0.11) and airplanes (0.18).
Fuel Efficiency. Modern buses and coaches are remarkably fuel-efficient, especially considering the number of people they carry. To carry one passenger over 100 kilometres, buses and coaches need, on average, between 0.6 and 0.9 litre of diesel fuel whereas, on average, a diesel car will consume 5.9 litres of fuel, a gas-powered car 7.6 litres, an airplane 6.6 litres and high-speed trains 2.6 litres. No other means of collective passenger transport is more energy efficient than use of bus and coach hire for business travel and your corporate events!
Congestion. In Europe, one coach can replace up to 30 cars in terms of average occupancy rates, while one full coach has the potential of removing more than 50 cars from the road, thus significantly reducing congestion, emissions and use of energy.
Safety. Buses and coaches are the safest of all road transport modes. They even equal the safety level of trains, despite sharing infrastructure with other users and modes. From 2007 to 2008, bus and coach passengers represented a mere 0.57% of road fatalities in the European Union, which is even less than the 0.79% share attributed to agricultural tractors! Despite this exemplary record, further enhancing safety remains the top priority for bus and coach operators.
Drivers. Professional bus and coach drivers are a key asset to the passenger road transport industry. Life-long learning has long been a reality for professional bus and coach drivers. Bus and coach drivers in many countries, unlike regular road users, are bound by law to undergo extensive training to pass stringent supplementary theory and driving tests. They must also pass a special medical examination.
