Two new propane powered buses will be added to the fleet for the Crawford AuSable School District next month. The Crawford AuSable School District’s Board of Education recently approved the purchase of a pair of buses at a cost of $184,746. The buses were ordered through a statewide bidding arrangement for all school districts through the Holland Bus Company. The propane buses are coming from the Blue Bird Corporation, which is based in Fort Valley, Georgia.

Mobile County School System has been honored for its alternative fuels bus fleet. Mobile County Public Schools now has 80 propane-powered school buses that have replaced older diesel-powered buses in its fleet. BusWorx supplied the new Blue Bird Propane Vision buses that are equipped with ROUSH CleanTech propane fuel system engines.
As fleets across America explore alternative fuels, one is quickly becoming the answer for many, including school buses – propane autogas. There are more than 11,000 propane school buses operating in the U.S., and thanks to a donation from CHS Stewardship and local co-ops, eight school districts in Wisconsin and Iowa have introduced propane-powered school buses in their districts.
