In addition, being with a group of people is safer than travelling alone. Additionally, it is also cheaper than taking a plane. Besides, it is one of the greenest modes of transportation as moving many people around in a single vehicle has numerous benefits in terms of reduced fossil fuel usage and lower emissions per passenger.
