The Big Green Bus

The Motorcoach is considered the greenest form of transportation when measured in terms of passenger miles per gallon of fuel.

Now a group of creative students decided to turn up the notch by retrofitting a standard coach to run on waste vegetable oil and solar panels, as well as many other green amenities. Hence, The Big Green Bus.

Save on Gas this Summer: Take the Bus!

The New York Times compiled a list of 13 ways to save on gasoline this summer and “taking the bus” was one of the suggestions:
TAKE THE BUS Cheap express buses with names like BoltBus, Megabus and Vamoose have become popular along the Northeast Corridor and elsewhere, with amenities like free Wi-Fi and power and seats for $30 or less, depending on when you reserve — which can be less than what you might pay in gas if you drive yourself.

Vamoose Bus Supports the National Cherry Blossom Festival

In February of 1912, thousands of Japanese cherry trees arrived in Washington, DC. The trees have been donated by Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo, in an effort to enhance the growing friendship between the United States and Japan.

In a ceremony on March 27, 1912, First Lady Helen Herron Taft and Vis
countess Chinda, wife of the Japanese ambassador, planted the first two of these trees on the north bank of the Tidal Basin.

Every year thousands of people flock to DC to see the blossoming cherry trees and attend the events that herald the beginning of spring in the nation’s capital.

This year the festivals have a special meaning as a portion of the proceeds from the 2011 festival will be donated to the Red Cross, in an attempt to aid and assist the earthquake & tsunami victims in Japan.

Vamoose Bus is a proud supporter of the 2 week festival and is pleased to be a part of this great cause.

The chain of events commenced on March 26 and will continue through April 10, 2011.
