Every Child Deserves a Safe, Clean, and Healthy Ride to School
When a child rides a propane-fueled bus to school, they arrive healthier, safer, and better prepared to learn. Diesel school buses are not good for our kids or our communities.
Though electric buses run clean and quiet, their extremely high costs place big burdens on school district budgets. That can mean less money for what matters most: educating children.
Propane buses offer many of the same environmental benefits of electric — but at a fraction of the cost. They travel farther, refuel more quickly, and even have a smaller carbon footprint. That means a clean, quiet ride for every child (and huge cost savings for school districts).

“Replacing some of our older diesel buses with these clean energy propane buses really spoke to the board’s vision. Propane fuel costs a fraction of what diesel costs and maintenance costs are much lower. For every dollar that we can save with these kinds of things, we can push back into the classroom because that is our ultimate mission.” Tina Stoll, School Board President, North Penn School District
