Cleveland RTA buys 20 autogas paratransit buses

October 15, 2014 By    

The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) bought 20 propane-fueled paratransit shuttle buses that it will use to transport residents with disabilities.

Each bus is built on a Ford E-450 chassis and equipped with a Roush CleanTech liquid propane autogas fuel system installed by Green Alternative Systems.

ElDorado National-Kansas designed the body of its Aerotech bus model on a fiberglass composite reinforced structure. Each bus includes a lift to meet the needs of passengers who use wheelchairs.

RTA says eventually, its fleet of 100 paratransit buses will run on propane; it is in the process of installing a propane autogas fueling station onsite.
