Dealer Comes Through
What do you get when you purchase a propane bus from our competitor? Nothing! Just ask Colorado/West Equipment’s Jeff Koza who came through for the Boulder Valley School District when it purchased IC propane buses that never showed up.
Last year, the school district purchased 10 propane buses from IC Bus. After waiting, and waiting, the district has yet to receive them (it’s been 13 months and counting). When the red flags began flying, they turned to Jeff to find a solution.
While the school district was rewriting the bid, Jeff suggested help from ROUSH CleanTech and Blue Bird by offering plant tours, on-site visits and . Meeting the Blue Bird and ROUSH CleanTech manufacturer reps, the district staffers were reassured that they would not only get a great solution, they’d actually get propane buses on their lot.
This meeting encouraged the school district to change the language of its bid and, ultimately, went with Blue Bird propane-powered buses. Now, the district plans to purchase 17 buses each year for the next 5 years.
We want to congratulate Colorado/West Equipment’s Jeff Koza on his commitment to the customer and to propane. He was able to secure an order from a customer who had previously ordered from a competitor, and to show why Blue Bird offers the best propane fuel system in the bus industry.
