Largest Propane Autogas School Bus Purchase In History Marks Launch Of Propane Road Tour

"As the leading alternative fuel system engineering company, ROUSH CleanTech is proud to partner with Blue Bird on this groundbreaking school bus order from STA," said Todd Mouw, vice president of sales and marketing for ROUSH CleanTech. "With more alternative fuel buses on our nation's roads than any other manufacturer, Blue Bird is proving that propane autogas is an ideal and viable option for school districts to reduce their fuel and maintenance costs while lowering emissions."

Blue Bird Propane-Powered Vision school buses reduce carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide and total hydrocarbon emissions, and virtually eliminate particulate matter, when compared to conventionally fueled school buses. Noise levels on the bus are decreased by as much as 50 percent when compared to diesel counterparts, making it easier to hear the children on board. Since more than 90 percent of U.S. propane supplies are produced domestically, propane autogas reduces our nation's dependence on foreign oil.

Along the route, the bus will refuel at existing public propane autogas fuel stations. With the largest refueling network of any alternative fuel, propane autogas is a solution for school districts across the country whether using public stations or installing private sites to refuel their fleet vehicles.

In addition to meeting stringent Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board certification standards, the Type C Blue Bird Propane-Powered Vision provides best-in-class serviceability, extensive optional equipment choices, and seating for up to 78 passengers.
