Motorcoaches: The Greenest Transportation Choice
Motorcoaches are the most energy-efficient mode of transportation; twice as fuel-efficient as Amtrak and other train services, three times as efficient as automobiles, and four times as efficient as commercial aviation. To learn more about C&J’s sustainable efforts and our promise to go—and stay—green, download our infographic or reach out to us with your questions.
- All C&J vehicles are purchased with state-of-the-art emissions-lowering technology to reduce polluting particulate emissions by 90%.
- All C&J buses use a GPS, which enables us to control/eliminate unnecessary idling. These GPS systems allow us to monitor speed and braking patterns, thereby increasing savings in tire wear and in fuel economy.
- We offer mobile ticketing and electronically scan passengers ticket to reduce paper usage.
- We recycle all cardboard, paper and plastics products that are left on our buses.
- We reuse waste oil to reduce the consumption and amount of oil usage.
- Our facilities are run on energy-efficient LEDs.
- We run Michelin high-efficiency tires on our vehicles to maximize fuel economy.
- C&J is a member stakeholder of the Granite State Clean Cities Coalition (www.granitestatecleancities.nh.gov/)
- All C&J operators are trained in sustainable transportation best practices, earning us the eRating Certification. (www.erating.org)
- One C&J motorcoach can replace up to 49 automobiles on the highway — saving fuel, cutting emissions, and reducing congestion.
- C&J buses currently provide 184 passenger miles per gallon (MPG)… more than double the second most fuel-efficient transportation alternative.
- C&J keeps our highways green and clean by supporting Adopt-a-Highway. We sponsor miles of highway that are kept trash-free, clean, and well maintained.
- C&J motorcoaches emit the least amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) per passenger than any other transportation vehicle. A full C&J bus cuts emissions by roughly 85% compared to the private automobiles of those passengers (collectively).
