US Coachways reaches $10,000 donation mark with NBF

By The National Biodiesel Board | May 21, 2015

A major motorcoach company has topped $10,000 in donations to the National Biodiesel Foundation. This makes the company, US Coachways, the single largest donor that is independent of the biodiesel industry to date.

The foundation is dedicated to advancing support for biodiesel through research, education and outreach.

Headquartered in Staten Island, New York, US Coachways is a family owned and operated bus and limousine charter company. The nationwide company has made regular monthly contributions to the foundation since 2012.

CEO Ed Telmany said his company is proud of its efforts to adopt sustainable practices.

“More people travel by bus than by any other mode of transportation,” Telmany said. “We contribute because we want to see the motorcoach industry become cleaner and more sustainable, and we’d also like to encourage other companies to put their commitment to sustainability into action by making donations to this foundation.”

Telmany said the contributions also show their customers that the company is motivated to help the transportation industry improve air quality.

“This donation total to date is a landmark amount, and we are exceedingly grateful for US Coachways’ continued commitment to biodiesel research and outreach,” said John Heisdorffer, foundation president. “On behalf of the researchers, students, instructors, mechanics and others that benefit from the foundation, we thank this company for its continued generous support.”

The NBF is an inclusive, nondiscriminatory 501(c) 3 organization working across the U.S. to create markets and expand support for biodiesel as an alternative, renewable fuel source.
