Go Green (Literally): How Efficient Coach Travel is Changing the Way the UK

London Coach Hire is one of the leading companies paving the way for green travel By Katya Rogers

There are several reasons to choose a coach or minibus for your next travel journey or social event. They're reliable, safe, relaxing and cost efficient - almost all the motivation you need. But did you know that they are one of the most environmentally friendly ways to travel? Lucky for you, we've done the hard work and research for you, determining why coaches and minibuses are the eco-friendliest transportation methods, even beating out the famous London Underground.

The world is changing. The current climate crisis and humans' effect on the environment is becoming an increasingly important subject on the international stage. Companies and organisations all over the globe are finding ways to reduce their carbon footprint. Fortunately for us at London Coach Hire, we've already taken steps towards bettering our impact on the planet.

Our coach buses hold a capacity of fifty-six passengers. That's fifty-six less cars on the road, reducing congestion and allowing for automobiles to drive smoother and faster. London Coach Hire offers coach and minibus hire from Central London to destinations all across the United Kingdom, including popular destinations such as Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Manchester. While reaching distances of over 500 miles may seem detrimental to our mission of reducing our carbon footprint, coaches and minibuses are actually one of the most environmentally friendly transportation methods. Coaches are more energy efficient than trains, cars and air travel. A car travelling from London to Edinburgh releases approximately 71.0 kilograms of carbon emissions per passenger, where a coach only releases approximately 9.2 kilograms. In the United Kingdom overall, cars and taxis release 69.7 million tonnes of carbon annually, that is equal to 18% of all the nations' emissions. Coaches release only about 1% of the nations' emissions.

At London Coach Hire, we are committed to decreasing the size of our carbon footprint. Our engines are regularly checked by our engineers, ensuring low emissions and low fuel consumption.

Based in London, London Coach Hire prides itself on the steps its city is taking to reduce their carbon footprint. We are kept to the high standards of the Low Commission Zone, a scheme that tackles air pollution by limiting vehicles that emit a certain amount of air pollution.

According to a research report done by the Transportation Statistics of Great Britain in 2017, the average work commute for a Londoner is the longest in the UK, at an average of 46 minutes. As of 2020, London has reached a population of approximately nine million people. That's nine million people, all with places to go. London is one of the most vibrant and fast paced cities in the UK. It's moving fast, but we're not leaving you behind. London Coach Hire is hitting all the hottest locations and cities in the United Kingdom, and we're doing it in the safest and most environmental friendly way possible.
