Coach hire is a greener way to travel ...

Nowadays everybody is under increasing pressure to do their bit for the environment, and coach hire is one way to help solve the problem. Companies aspiring to adhere to CSR should look at more economic forms of ground transport and travel management.

We aim to reduce carbon emissions throughout our entire fleet, through internal initiatives. In addition we are also trying to cut fuel consumption by 2% across our fleet. As a former member of 'Carbon Clear' we understand what's needed to manage carbon and other emissions from our coaches. We are now moving a step further and introducing proactive initiatives to deliver true carbon emission savings.

Coach hire and travel with The Kings Ferry means efficiency for all.

Our modern, well-maintained coach hire fleet already has one of the lowest levels of carbon emissions within the UK coach industry, but we understand the importance of reducing our carbon footprint further still. More importantly, CO² emissions, calculated in kilograms per passenger per journey, show that coach travel is already one of the most environmentally friendly modes of transport currently available. Statistics taken from the Department for Transport/National Atmospheric Emission Inventory 2004, reflect this claim.
