James River Bus Lines and Carey Transportation Go Green

James River Bus Lines and Carey Transportation have been designated as Virginia Green partners.

Virginia Green is the statewide program that works to reduce the environmental impact of Virginia’s tourism industry. It is a partnership between the Virginia Tourism Corporation and the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality. The program awards Virginia Green Certification to tourism-related businesses taking voluntary actions to reduce harmful impacts on the environment.

In 1998, James River Bus Lines’ headquarters was designed in order to conserve energy with energy efficient lighting; geothermal heating and cooling; natural lighting; and reduced water usage. Our maintenance departments recycle used fluids (oil, antifreeze, refrigerant); we drain and recycle our used oil filters; our wash water is filtered and tested before entering the sewer. Lastly, we recycle our paper and plastics. Please visit for more information.
