Making the switch to bus and coach – a low cost, low carbon solution to the UK’s transport challenges

Issue 6 2010  •  15 December 2010  •  Claire Haigh, Campaign Director, Greener Journeys

In the fight against climate change, transport is one of the toughest challenges. It’s the only sector where CO2 emissions are still rising, and it accounts for more than a fifth of UK emissions. Nearly 60% of these emissions are from cars, with no sign of abating. Car traffic is 87% greater than in 1980 and still rising, making the UK the most car dependent country in Europe. Purely in terms of the congestion this causes, the cost to the UK is £11 billion in GDP each year.
