Our Efforts to Keep it Green at Onondaga Coach

Onondaga Coach has been a part of the motorcoach industry since 1953 and were proud of it. Weve seen a lot of places over the years and bus travel is an exciting industry to be in but we understand we must do our part in helping our environment. Over the years weve continued to improve our fleet of buses and employed the newest technology as it has been developed. Just compare the benefits of taking a full bus versus a car it adds up!

According to the American Bus Association (ABA) If you are looking for a green way to travel, taking a bus is the way to go!

As we acquire new buses we are incorporating the latest clean diesel technology with them. Along with the engines, the exhaust systems are just as important. Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs) are also added to bring the discharge of diesel exhaust to near zero. You wont ever see clouds of black smoke coming from our newest buses because this filter burns off those particulates before they leave the bus. Its amazing how far weve come and were excited to be doing our part to help our environment.

Another new advancement installed in our newest coaches is what's called Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF). This is specifically designed to reduce NOx (nitrogen oxide) emmissions.
