Why schools love propane

Propane fueled buses provide benefits throughout your district!

UNCOMPROMISED SAFETY

Compared with diesel engines, propane autogas engines are noticeably quieter when operating.

  • Bus drivers are responsible for students’ safety during transportation. A quieter bus allows bus drivers to perform their jobs in a much less chaotic environment.
  • Easier to monitor students in the rear of the bus and take quick action in an emergency.
  • Easier to concentrate on the road ahead and provide a safe ride to and from school.

NO MORE BLACK SMOKE

Schools can switch to propane autogas buses to protect students from dangerous diesel exhaust.

  • The shorter height of younger students puts them face-to-face with a black cloud of diesel smoke every school day.
  • Children in wheelchairs are especially vulnerable to inhaling diesel exhaust.
  • Propane autogas buses do not aggravate the symptoms of students with asthma or otherbreathing-related issues.

SAVINGS FOR WHAT COUNTS

When a school district switches to propane autogas technology, they’re in a better position to afford what students need most.

  • More teachers reduce class sizes for more individualized student attention.

  • Everyday classroom supplies — pencils, markers, notebooks — which teachers may otherwise need to buy out-of-pocket.

  • Savings can be used to fund special education programs and hire specialist educators.

  • Funding for more robust fine arts and athletic programs that increase students’ confidence and provide a well-rounded education.
