The Greyhound bus company has recently decided to make a new push towards those of us who are looking for a more eco-friendly way to travel but also require certain amenities while on board. Did you know this big bus gives off less carbon dioxide than a hybrid car? We didn't either!

When it came to taking the bus previously there were certain steps you had to take before boarding. If you planned on working you had to take extra batteries or check ahead for a seat near (usually) the only outlet on board. Cell phones had to be fully charged and usually texting was the way to go since conversations could drain your battery without a way to recharge before your next stop. Leg room was iffy and they weren't really comfortable, but we put up with it anyway to not be behind the wheel for our trip.

Now the company is making great strides to have their buses appeal to a generation of people who are seeking out green methods of life and, more importantly, transportation. For every bus that's on the road, 40 cars aren't, and that's a huge number! They've added Wi-Fi, more outlets, removed a few seats and adjusted the seat belts so everyone has the most comfortable ride possible.

The new buses are being rolled out in the upper North East, hop on over to Greyhound to see if there's a route in your area. It's a great way to stay close to home without the pains of driving or worry about the journey while you're taking it! Are you a big bus fanatic? Or would you rather pack the kids in the minivan and call it good?
