We “went green” long before it was a well known movement. Our headquarters in Richmond, Virginia are eco-friendly, our vehicles are energy efficient, our in-house maintenance practices are earth conscious. Not because we have to be, but because it’s the right thing to do.
Our continued commitment to minimizing our impact on the environment has earned us a certification from Virginia Green Partners. This statewide program strives to reduce the environmental impact of Virginia’s tourism industry.
Although our larger vehicles use more total energy, they are tremendously efficient. Each of our high capacity vehicles take cars off the road (40 cars for each motorcoach, 20 cars for each mini-coach and 10 cars for each van).
We save 10,164.2 tons of CO2 a year.
This calculation includes the total amount of energy we consume in our buildings and vehicles and factors in the savings by utilizing efficient vehicles.
Calculations are based on our current electricity and fuel usage and an earlier study by MJ Bradley and Associates for the American Bus Association.
