Commute Greener

The commute greener community is growing. Today I visited an event for the European parliament members and their staff. Magnus Kuschel, the manageing director, presented the Commute Greener idea and how the app works:

Commute Greener allows you to keep track of your carbon foot print with you mobile phone. And, MEPs can now compare their daily travels, count their CO2 free miles and compete in reduction. For the advanced users you can ad the characteristics of your own car or use the community to exchange ideas or information.

I got the oportunity to present our hybrid bus as the most cost efficient way for society to reduce the environmental impact. When singeling out the C02 emissions, the hybrid emits in average 21 grammes per passenger kilometre. Compared to 140 grammes for the average car ride. For the fully seated hybrid bus the emission per passenger is 7 grammes per kilometer.
