Atlanta Bus Charter Company, Samson Trailways, Shares How to Go Green with Mass Transit

There are many reasons to hire an Atlanta bus charter for long distances with large (or even small) groups. Of these, there is one that is most important to those looking to do their part to help the environment.

    NORCROSS, GA, January 03, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Just as with a carpool, a bus rental in Atlanta can take cars off the congested streets. With more and more cities in the U.S. going green with public mass transit initiatives, a bus charter can provide an additional avenue to save energy.

Reasons to Turn to Green Alternatives
Transporting a bunch of people in a single car can lead to less CO2 emissions. Emissions related to transportation account for about 28 percent of greenhouse gases in the U.S. Further, transportation equates the second largest share of greenhouse gas emissions in the country. Of these, private vehicles, including pickups and SUVs, contribute 64 percent, while public transport is responsible for the rest. Statistically, 20 percent of carbon dioxide emissions can be brought down simply if one in five Americans took their city's public transit system instead of their own vehicles to work every day.

If you are a corporate administrator, you can greatly reduce the carbon footprint of your employees with a corporate shuttle they can take to and from work. An Atlanta bus charter can take as many as 50 cars off the highway and bring down the smog and pollution to which they would contribute.

If you are planning a holiday get-together within Georgia with a large group, hire charter buses in Atlanta to save yourself the hassle of driving, while decreasing the number of vehicles (and their consequential carbon footprints).

More Energy for the Future
In February 2012, gas prices reached a nine-month high. It is true that we had been overly-pessimistic about the scale of the crisis five years ago when we thought that energy sources were dwindling. It is also true that we have, since then, found unconventional sources of energy to replace gas. But the fact is that no matter how much we drill into domestic oil fields, there is a large foreign control on oil resources over which we don't have much power. As a result, it can help safeguard our future energy needs if we look for alternative modes of transport.

Besides public transport, bus charters for holidays, corporate shuttles and luxury motor coaches for tours can all help to preserve our energy resources.

Added Benefits
You can save money you would otherwise spend on gas. With fuel prices skyrocketing, it has become a necessity for many to keep their cars in the garage and take the public transport to and from work. The average U.S. household spends as much as $4,400 on 1,100 gallons of gas (at $4 a gallon) a year. Taking an Atlanta charter bus can save the average household thousands of dollars. According to a new report by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), the average driver in Atlanta can save as much as $775 monthly and $9,300 annually by not taking their vehicles out into the roads.

"Aside from the energy and money savings opportunities, a charter bus can leave the passenger free to catch up on work or with others," notes Tom Sambdman, Vice President of Samson Trailways.
