US Coachways donations to Nat'l Biodiesel Foundation hit $15,000
US Coachways is a leading transportation company supporting sustainability and cleaner air and is challenging others to contribute monthly to biodiesel research and education. In March, US Coachways’ generous donations to the National Biodiesel Foundation reached the milestone total of $15,000.
“More people travel by bus than by any other mode of transportation,” said Joseph Lucci, president of national sales for US Coachways and its affiliates. “We contribute because we want to see the motorcoach industry become cleaner and more sustainable, and we’d also like to encourage other companies to put their commitment to sustainability into action by making donations to this foundation. While each bus has the potential to take up to 50 cars off the roads, our contributions demonstrate our commitment to help the transportation industry further improve air quality.”
“Thanks to donations from companies such as US Coachways, the foundation has been able to administer and support valuable education and research projects,” stated Jeff Lynn, president of the foundation. “Over the past year we have trained hundreds of mechanics, improved the greenhouse gas emission profile of biodiesel, provided scholarships to next-generation scientists, and educated key stakeholders and congressional staff about the merits of biodiesel. On behalf of the researchers, students, instructors, mechanics and others that benefit from the foundation, we thank US Coachways for its continued, generous support.”
Headquartered in Staten Island, New York, US Coachways is a family owned and operated charter bus company that specializes in ground transportation for events such as school outings, religious retreats, camp transportation, team travel, weddings and other private events, and corporate client needs. With access to more than 150 bus depots nationwide, US Coachways helps move groups of people safely, efficiently and affordably anywhere in the U.S. The nationwide company has made regular monthly contributions to the foundation since 2012.
The NBF is an inclusive, nondiscriminatory 501(c) 3 organization working across the U.S. to create markets and expand support for biodiesel as an alternative, renewable fuel source.
