Riding public transportation saves energy in general because, per person, the energy use of one vehicle is far lower than it would be if each person were to use a smaller vehicle like a car, motorcycle, or moped.

Petroleum is the main source of energy for transportation. Inpetroleum products accounted for about 92% of the total U.S. transportation sector energy use. Biofuels, such as ethanol and biodiesel, contributed about 5%.

Natural gas accounted for about 3%, most of which was used in natural gas pipeline compressors. Let’s look at the typical energy use of some public transit systems, and then compare them to our favorite automobile in the driveway.

Let’s look at the DOE Transportation Energy Data Book Chapter 2. Not surprisingly, public transit systems vary in their energy use: light rail systems use between 2, (San Diego, CA) (Kenosha, WI) BTU per.

economic growth, energy security, and environmental quality. Purpose of Daylight Saving Time. Daylight Saving Time is observed for several reasons: It saves energy. During Daylight Saving Time, the sun sets one hour later in the evenings, so the need to use electricity for household lighting and appliances is reduced.

** National average ridership numbers are from table of the Transportation Energy Data Book. Mass transit in the United States includes buses, bus rapid transit, trolleys, rail, and ferries. Transit buses are particularly well-suited for alternative fuels, and more than 40% run on these lower-emissions, cost-saving options.

Transport is the most visible consumer of energy apart from heating. From planes soaring into the sky and heavy trains thundering along the rails at mph to the Smart cars and mopeds pootling around our city streets, every mode of transport (apart from cycling and walking) is a major consumer of energy.

Public Transportation. Individuals can save more than $9, per year by taking public transportation instead of driving.

Moreover, this mode can lead to substantial environmental benefits. If your commute is miles round trip, the switch to public transportation could lower your carbon footprint by 4, pounds annually. The energy efficiency in transport is the useful travelled distance, of passengers, goods or any type of load; divided by the total energy put into the transport propulsion means.

The energy input might be rendered in several different types depending on the type of propulsion, and normally such energy is presented in liquid fuels, electrical energy or food energy.

The energy efficiency. Transportation accounts for more than 30 percent of U.S. carbon dioxide ing to the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), public transportation in the United States saves approximately billion gallons of gasoline and about million tons of carbon dioxide annually.

transportation system and the efficacy of proposed. Energy conservation is the effort made to reduce the consumption of energy by using less of an energy service. This can be achieved either by using energy more efficiently (using less energy for a constant service) or by reducing the amount of service used (for example, by driving less).

Energy conservation is a part of the concept of Eco-sufficiency. Transportation Energy Data Book: Edition 35 can be found online at: Prepared for the Vehicle Technologies Office Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy U.S.
