Regina Catholic School Division, based in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, switched its entire school bus fleet to Blue Bird propane-powered school buses.

Regina Catholic School Division partnered with LP3 Transportation Solutions to add 89 Blue Bird Vision Gen 4 propane buses from Legacy Bus Sales in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, to help reduce emissions produced by each school bus. According to Blue Bird, the propane buses make up 100 percent of the school district’s Type C fleet, and the largest fleet of propane buses in Saskatchewan.

Equipped with a Ford 6.8-liter V10 engine, each bus is powered by a Roush CleanTech propane fuel system. The school district hosted a community event called “Meaningful Difference with Alternative Fuels” on Aug. 10 to highlight its partnership with Blue Bird, LP3 Transportation and Roush CleanTech.
