Leading Alt Fuel in School Transportation Holds Open Forum

WASHINGTON — At this year’s STN Expo in Reno, Nevada, the Propane Education & Research Council is providing school transportation professionals with the information they need to build the business case for clean, American propane autogas.

Expo attendees are invited to stop by PERC Booth V, in the Nevada Exhibit Hall, to interact with propane industry experts, and get answers to their questions about the fuel.

“Propane autogas continues to gain traction as the leading alternative fuel in the school bus industry,” said Michael Taylor, PERC director of autogas business development. “Reinforced by the availability of propane autogas options from four major manufacturers, we’re finding that an increasing number of transportation directors have questions about adopting the fuel.”

Currently, Blue Bird, Collins, IC Bus, and Thomas Built each offer propane-autogas-powered school bus options:

  • Blue Bird Type A Micro Bird and Type C Vision.
  • Collins Type A NexBus.
  • Thomas Built Type A Minotaur andType C Saf-T-Liner.
  • IC Bus Type C CE.

“We’re exhibiting at STN Expo this year to help school bus fleets and private contractors understand why propane autogas has passed the test for districts around the country: it’s clean, safe, and provides a lower total cost of ownership compared with diesel,” said Taylor.

Also in PERC’s booth, show attendees will see propane autogas refueling dispensers from Superior Energy, Industrial Propane Service, and CleanFuel USA, as well as learn more about the growing number of propane-autogas-powered school bus options.
