Thoughts about the relationships between transport and the urban area it serves

An idea to reduce bus fares

with one comment

This came to my attention thanks to Transport 2000 Canada

On 5 November it was reported that users of certain buses in Scotland will be able to trade in used cooking oil for reduced fares. The oil will be recycled to power a fleet of eight buses with 100-percent biodiesel as a trial to reduce carbon emissions by Stagecoach, one of Britain’s largest transit bus, train, and intercity coach operators. Households on a 20 km bus route through Kilmarnock, with 15,500 passengers per week, will be given a container to collect used cooking oil and a local recycling plant will issue bus discount vouchers.

  1. I think we’re probably too healthy on the west coast for residents to have copious amounts of used cooking oil in our homes – well, hopefully, anyways. Restaurants, on the other hand…
