SEAT Planners proudly supports The Conservation Fund's Go Zero program.

With every seat we book, we make a donation to plant trees that will trap 100 percent of the C02 emissions resulting from transportation for each of our events. You can help too. Calculate your own footprint and donate today.

Go Zero benefits more than our climate -- it helps to protect the places people and animals live and play. Learn more about how Go Zero is working in your neck of the woods.

Large Meetings Transportation

Motorcoach use can remove up to 55 auto or taxi trips from the road for each trip that they make. Motorcoaches produce the equivalent of 250 passenger miles per gallon of fuel (i.e.: in 2004 the national average of passenger miles per gallon was 148.4). A Motorcoach with only seven passengers is more fuel efficient than an automobile with one occupant.

On Meeting Site:

  • Limit idling to five minutes or less
  • Routes designed and monitored for efficiency
  • Schedule vehicles for maximum passenger usage
  • Multiple trips per vehicle order
  • Limit or eliminate "mass" moves to reduce O2 emissions and fuel use
  • Reuse of linens and bath towels in staff housing
