Bus & Motorcoach News highlighted the ABA Foundation's updated Environmental Study of Different Modes of Transportation that showed motorcoach travel is one of the greenest forms of transportation:

"The American Bus Association recently reported that the motorcoach industry in 2017 achieved 280.1 passenger miles per gallon of fuel. That is based on an average fuel efficiency of 6.4 miles per gallon and an average passenger load of 43.7 riders.

By comparison, an economy car with a solo driver gets about 35 passenger miles per gallon and four people traveling in a mid-sized SUV achieve about 100 passenger miles per gallon."
