Low-carbon buses are good, more people on buses would be better

Former campaigner's picture

3 July 2009: We've argued that the Government should provide funding for low-carbon buses, so we're glad it has decided to help bus companies and local authorities to buy several hundred of them.

But driving produces up to three times more carbon than taking a regular bus. As we've told the Government (pdf), if it really wants to cut carbon emissions from transport, it has to make the bus a real alternative for people so they can leave their cars behind.
