Carbon & Money Savings Calculator

Your Car emits 7.11 lbs of CO2 driving 10 miles with an efficiency of 27.3 miles per gallon.

A half full bus only emits 49.33 lbs of CO2 per passenger, saving -42.23 lbs of CO2 a week.

That is the same greenhouse gas savings that recycling 2.84 lbs of waste a week instead of putting it in the landfill.

Or it would take 7.4 trees a year to sequester the carbon emitted by driving if you didn't ride the bus.

In addition...

The recomended maintenance cost for your car is $0.50 per week ($0.05 x miles).

The vehicle depreciation for your car is $2.30 per week ($0.23 x miles).

Your estimated insurance costs are $0.60 per week ($0.06 x miles).

Your parking costs are $5.00 per week.
