Indianapolis Public Schools plans to add 100 propane-powered CE Series school buses from IC Bus to its fleet for the 2016-17 school year.

The school district’s new CE Series buses run on Power Solutions International’s (PSI) 8.8-liter propane engines. Midwest Transit Equipment, an IC Bus dealer based in Whitestown, Ind., will deliver the buses to the school district.

According to IC Bus, the school district received its first deliveries of the buses in June and will receive the full order in time for the new school year. The buses are being built at the IC Bus assembly plant in Tulsa, Okla.

Indianapolis Public Schools, Greater Indiana Clean Cities and other community members celebrated the deployment of the school buses July 15 at the old Coca-Cola facility in Indianapolis.

“We are excited to refresh nearly half of our fleet with the propane-powered CE Series buses and look forward to seeing the benefit of using an alternative, clean-burning fuel to transport our students safely,” says Monica Coburn, Indianapolis Public Schools’ transportation director.
