School Transportation

Propane autogas saves school districts money, so they can afford more of what impacts students the most.

Fueling A Brighter Future

Thousands of districts across the U.S. are adopting propane autogas for proven safety, reduced emissions, a lower cost of ownership, and greater savings—powering peace of mind for transportation officials and parents alike.

Quieter Operation

The buses operate noticeably quieter than diesel for a safe ride. Plus, all propane autogas school buses meet U.S. FMVSS and Canadian CMVSS motor vehicle safety standards, like conventional school buses.

Savings That Go Further

Propane autogas delivers the lowest total cost-of-ownership available. Districts could use those savings to afford more teachers, classroom supplies, and extracurricular activities.

Cleaner Neighborhoods

With propane autogas buses, students aren't exposed to the emissions from older diesel buses that can aggravate asthma and cause other health issues.

Happier Drivers

Operators of propane autogas school buses report higher job satisfaction — they get to drive a quieter bus, and they don't have to bring home the smell of exhaust.
