|•||Starr continues to invest in coaches that utilize cleaner 2007 engine technology which use only Ultra Low Sulpher Diesel fuel which virtually eliminates sulphur emissions and eliminates 90% of particulates (black smoke).|
|•||Starr recycles oil, tires, batteries, and many more engine components.|
|•||Starr operates a fleet of Prevost coaches. Prevost is the only North American coach manufacturer to be a world-recognized environmental leader.|
|•||Motorcoaches are the most fuel-efficient mode of transportation. They deliver more than 160 passenger miles per gallon of fuel and yield more people-moving efficiency than any other mode, helping reduce traffic congestion and noise pollution associated with individual car travel. According to the American Public Transportation Association, a bus with as few as seven passengers is more fuel-efficient than the average car with one occupant used for commuting.|
|•||Motorcoaches are 4 times less damaging to the environment than car-mode transportation; Motorcoaches are 5 times less damaging to the environment than rail-mode transportation; Motorcoaches are 4 times less damaging to the environment than air-mode transportation.|
|•||Motorcoaches provide 184 passenger miles per gallon (MPG) vs single-passenger automobiles that achieve 28 passenger MPG.|
|•||Each full 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 emit the least carbon dioxide per passenger mile when compared to other vehicles, and are on average 6 times more energy and fuel-efficient than single occupancy automobiles.|
|•||Carbon Dioxide emissions are reduced by an average of 85% per passenger mile for every person who chooses motorcoach travel instead of driving alone.|
|•||Switching to motorcoach travel for the 12,500 miles traveled annually by the average automobile would reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 4.3 tons per automobile annually.|
There are many other advantages to travelling by motorcoach than just the environment. Motorcoaches are able to take visitors right to the door of attractions, hotels and restaurants. Motorcoach travel also offers unique experiences that are sometimes only available to groups. Motorcoach tours are the right choice for the environment and with customer service being an essential and unique experience, group travel is a great option for consumers to have a great vacation experience.
