Going Green

School transportation helps to reduce the carbon emission and makes the country a safer place to stay.

A recent study indicates that more than 65,000 students of private schools do not use school transportation in Dubai which means that a similar number of cars and vans are being used by the parents to drop the students. An article published in Gulf News on 17th February, 2010 highlights how the traffic emissions pose a major threat to the environment. “Petrol and Diesel Engine vehicles emit a variety of pollutants, principally carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOx), volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and particulates (PM10) whose impact on urban air quality is negative and alarming. According to Municipality statistics Dubai has 1,021,880 vehicles on its roads producing over 23.3 million kg of CO2 each day. Cars running on petrol are responsible for around 82% of the fumes.”
