Maybe it’s because we’re a Maine bus company or maybe it’s because we have children, but here at Northeast Charter & Tour, we believe in taking responsibility for leaving the world a little better for the next generation. If you ask Scott (the owner) why it’s important, he would tell you, “Because it’s the right thing to do.”
Let’s look at the facts. On a four-hour trip, for example, a car emits approximately 400 pounds of carbon dioxide. For that same trip, a bus emits approximately just 150 pounds of carbon dioxide.
It is because of this philosophy, and overall company-wide efforts, that Northeast Charter was recognized by the American Bus Association as the 2013 Green Operator of the Year – one of only two motorcoach companies in the country to receive this honor.
