Getting "Greener" as we Grow

At Southern Express, we make every effort possible to be kind to the environment. As we grow and evolve, we will continue to look for ways that we can maximize resources and give back to our earth. One consideration will be to add more environmentally friendly motorcoaches with new EPA-compliant engines. These engines emit less black smoke and particles from their exhausts and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 90% over previous motorcoach models... that's a new generation of motorcoach carrier!

Of the 19 motorcoaches in our fleet, six currently have cleaner engines and we are in the process of purchasing more. We are also researching battery-powered buses as an alternative option and ensuring that all of our vehicles meet current EPA standards.
