In the United States, an estimated 480,000 buses travel on the road each day. Bus passenger journeys account for about two-thirds of all public transport usage, and according to SF gate research, bus transportation saves an estimated 327,000 solo round-trips per year in the United States. With the average number of passengers for a standard coach bus being 32, high daily mileage and large quantities of passengers causes the parts of a bus to wear and malfunction frequently.
Public transportation and shuttle buses are not only important for providing reliable transportation options for U.S. residents, they also provide another outlet for being environmentally friendly with the amount of fossil-fuel they save by limiting solo-trips each day.
