Sustain ability l.jpg


Ability to Sustain

Are there enough resources on planet Earth for all to have to have a bicycle of their very own? A Prius?

When we use the term “sustainability” are we really talking increased-sustainability or increased resource-use efficiency?

Mpg cafe standards l.jpg

MPG & CAFE Standards

Prius with a Single Occupant (SOV) 40mpg

Honda Insight (SOV) 60mpg

Vanpool 14 passengers x 13mpg = effectively 182 mpg, on a per person basis

City Bus 10 people x 5mpg = 50mpg, on a per person basis

Ultimately transportation fuel efficiency is a combination of vehicle design and passenger load
