New Study Makes the Case for Sustainable Conference Transportation
What’s the more sustainable form of event transportation, ride-sharing or shuttle buses? If you guessed shuttles, you’d be right. According to data collected from the EPA and US Department of Energy:
- Shuttles result in less CO2 emissions per passenger-mile than Ride-Sharing
- For point-to-point conference transportation, Shuttles are the most environmentally friendly
- Ride-Sharing causes unnecessary traffic around convention centers
Are Shuttles More Eco-Friendly than Ride-Sharing?
Conference Transportation by the Numbers
“The data is clear,” says Carson Hotard, Enterprise Development Manager at ETS. “Planners who are concerned about sustainability should shy away from suggesting ride-sharing as a transportation option for attendees. Encouraging attendees to use traditional transportation methods ensures that we keep our conferences sustainable.”
