The Big Green Bus is a project that was founded in 2005 to promote sustainability and renewable energy sources run by Dartmouth College students.[1] Students originally converted a used school bus to run on waste vegetable oil, (WVO), but in 2009 upgraded to a 1998 MCI coach bus.[2]

The Big Green Bus in Chapel Hill, NC, July 2010.

The BGB is part of the Dartmouth Outing Club and is entirely student-run.[3][4][5] The group stops at various public events, as well as schools, camps and other gatherings of people to make educational presentations.[6] The program also educates participants about how to manage an environmental project.[7][8] The BGB provides tips and educational points through its presentations and its websites.[9]
