Is riding Greyhound’s eco-bus better for the environment than flying?

    Flying is one of the most carbon-intensive ways available to travel, and the airline industry makes a very significant contribution to global warming. This is partly just because flying burns a whole lot of fossil fuels – but also, carbon emitted into the atmosphere at great heights actually has an increased ability to contribute to global warming. Buses, on the other hand, are one of the most climate-friendly ways to travel. A trip from Washington, DC to Boston on a Greyhound Eco-Bus generates about 65 pounds of carbon dioxide. This is less than half the amount produced by driving the same distance in a Prius hybrid. Flying that distance would contribute the equivalent of 420 pounds of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. Clearly, greyhound is by far the best way to travel!
