This category is deprecated. The Greenhouse Gas Protocol methodologies for bus transport can now be found here

This data is from the GHGP worksheet GHG emissions from transport or mobile sources v2.0. This category allows the user to calculate emissions from a US bus journey on a per passenger basis, depending on the distance traveled. The user selects the drill-down type to select the type of bus from the following options.

  • local bus
  • coach
The distance and numberOfPassengers are then entered as profile item values.

The algorithm returns a kg CO2e value, which represents CO2, N2O and CH4 emissions for the distance and number of passengers specified.
