BTS is Going Green

At BTS, all our drivers and staff members strive to be responsible environmental citizens!

Did you know that you can save time and money, reduce congestion and help our environment simply by choosing BTS as your transportation provider? That's because your choice of transportation is the most significant environmental decision you make each day. And by travelling with BTS, you'll choose to join us at the forefront of environmentally friendly travel.

How have we become as eco-friendly as possible?

1. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

We recycle paper, cardboard, glass, plastic, cell phones, toner cartridges and more. Our paper is 100% recycled, we use low-wattage bulbs and we reuse cardboard boxes, file folders and packing materials. We even print on scrap paper whenever possible.

2. Staff Seminars

We go that extra mile beyond the basics of "reduce, reuse, recycle." Regular seminars are held for our drivers and staff to show them how they can help our environment every time they get into a vehicle. Our seminars focus on:

  • Reducing fuel use by cutting idling time, regularly inspecting tires and reducing road speeds

  • Starting and stopping as smoothly and gently as possible, saving fuel and brakes

  • Using electrical accessories in vehicles only when absolutely necessary

  • Ensuring vehicles are in top running condition so they last longer and run cleaner

3. Always Look For a Better Way

At BTS, the status quo is never enough in all areas of our business, including our environmental plan. We're always working with our partners to enhance our green program and exploring new and innovative ways to reduce our carbon footprint. To this end, we have already invested in new vehicle design, vehicle modifications and alternative fuels. And we have goals for the present and future, including:

  • Use of advanced technology and more efficient routes

  • Promoting community ride-sharing and pooling 

  • Promoting alternate means of transportation, including bicycling, walking, driving less, using mass transit and even telecommuting

Your choice of BTS is a choice to Go Green!
