VIP Greener Travel

Greener Travel

We aim to reduce carbon emissions throughout our entire fleet, through internal initiatives. In addition, we are also trying to cut fuel consumption by 2% across our fleet. As a former member of 'Carbon Clear' we understand what's needed to manage carbon and other emissions from our coaches. We are now moving a step further and introducing proactive initiatives to deliver true carbon emission savings.

Our modern, well-maintained coach hire fleet already has one of the lowest levels of carbon emissions within the UK coach industry, but we understand the importance of reducing our carbon footprint further still. More importantly, CO² emissions, calculated in kilograms for each passenger per journey, show that coach travel is already one of the most environmentally friendly modes of transport currently available. Statistics taken from the Department for Transport/National Atmospheric Emission Inventory 2004, reflect this claim.
