Which mode of transport pollutes the most?

Statista has published a chart of the greenhouse gas emissions of the various modes of transport using data from 2017 from the German Ministry of the Environment. Not surprisingly, the first one by far is the plane, which emits about 201 grams per kilometer per person, followed by the car with 139 grams. More surprising, on the 3rd place of the podium, the line buses with 75 grams. The best student is the touring coach with only 32 grams per kilometer per person, which is probably due to the new vehicle fleets that pollute much less.
