Birmingham International Coaches Ltd recognises the need for sustainable development and is committed to leading the industry in minimising the impact of its activities on the environment.
The key points of its strategy to achieve this are:
All drivers are experienced in transporting all types of groups and trips, are DBS cleared, trained to DVLA PCV standards and fully conversant with legal driving hours regulations
We will co-operate with the communities in which we operate and ensure that we meet the government, regulatory bodies and other interested parties with the shared vision of being a good and trusted neighbour.
Travelling by coach causes less pollution, per passenger kilometre, than the equivalent journey made by the same sized group of train or car passengers. Travelling by coach also significantly reduces road congestion.
We take environmental issues very seriously.
All Birmingham International Coaches are equipped with the latest Euro compliant engines.
The 'Euro' emission standards, issued in a series of European Union directives, define the acceptable limits for exhaust emissions of all new vehicles sold in European Union states.
Birmingham International Coaches maintenance standards are exceptionally high, because we employ our own specialist team of mechanics working in well-equipped, purpose built garage facilities at our head office. This helps to ensure that our coaches are operating cleanly and efficiently at all times.
How emission control works
All our vehicles are powered by DAF or Volvo which use the ADblue system to control emissions to within Euro standards. Adblue diesel technology is based on the combination of highly efficient engines and emission control measures using SCR technology.
