Go Green – and Save Some Green! – with Bus Travel

It’s a modern-day dilemma: you want to see the world. But as gas prices and carbon emissions rise, you also want to avoid negative impacts on both the environment and your wallet. It’s a tricky situation and one that many would-be travelers face during vacation season. Most don’t realize that the answer to their quandary might be as close as the local bus depot or the stop down the street. Because bus travel is now being recognized for what it is: a cheaper, greener way to travel.

Think about it. Airline fuel surcharges are skyrocketing, adding sometimes hundreds of dollars to already pricey fares. And in big countries like the US, where there’s often lots of distance between airports and “local” sights and attractions, car rental after a flight is often a necessity. Train travel also faces significant challenges in North America: although high-speed rail is being planned for certain corridors in the Northeast and parts of the South and California, the infrastructure will take years to develop, and tourists will still face major challenges getting access to more isolated spots like national parks and attractions in the heartland. And in its current state, with aging tracks and equipment, rail travel offers little time savings in exchange for the hefty premiums it charges for a single round trip ticket (which can often be as high as $200+ for a trip from Boston to New York’s Penn Station, for example.) And as regular passengers in the Northeast corridor will tell you, the train ride can often take close to 4 hours–which is about the same amount of time as it takes to drive from Beantown to the Big Apple.
