Take a group tour!
Research studies condcuted by the Union of Concerned Scientists, DePaul University, and MJ Bradley & Associates all confirm what the American Bus Association has been saying all along: motorcoaches are the greenest way to travel by virtue of drastically lower carbon emissions compared to airlines, trains, and personal automobile. In other words, motorcoaches are the most fuel-efficient and least energy intensive mode of commercial passenger transportation.
I won’t bore you with the statistics, but if you want details, the data is listed at the bottom of this message.
And going green isn’t the only benefit of traveling together:
motorcoach travel provides safety, comfort and convenience in a spacious environment featuring roomy seats, ample leg room, video monitors and onboard lavatory.
travel with people who have similar interests

minimize uncertainty, and enjoy the pampering of a hosted vacation
