Greener than you think

Buses in Portsmouth are greener than you think

Pollution and congestion effects everyone, it can make existing heart, lung and asthma conditions worse, and make getting around town frustrating and difficult. But we can all do our bit to make sure the air we breathe is cleaner and our roads flow easier.

Using the bus instead of the car can help as it reduces the amount of vehicles on the road, one full double deck bus can take up to 75 cars off the road! 

You don't even have to switch to bus for every journey you make. Did you know, that by switching one car journey in 25 that you make you could help save up to 2 millions tonnes of CO2 emissions a year and that would mean 1 billion fewer car journeys on the road too.

Buses in Portsmouth have euro 6 low emission engines. Each euro 6 bus emits fewer emissions overall than the average diesel car, despite having 15 to 20 times the capacity, providing a significant CO2 saving for everyone onboard.
