Blue Bird, Roush CleanTech extend partnership

May 18, 2018 By    

Blue Bird and Roush CleanTech have extended their alternative fuel school bus partnership through 2025.

Since 2012, the relationship between the school bus manufacturer and the alternative fuel system manufacturer has resulted in 1,300 districts operating more than 16,000 propane, compressed natural gas (CNG) and gasoline-powered school buses, the company reports.

The company says the collaboration has brought clean and affordable innovation to student transportation, including the 100-gallon extended-range propane fuel tank and manufacturing an engine with one common architecture for propane, gasoline and CNG.

“We are committed to supporting the student transportation industry’s push away from diesel to a simpler, cleaner and more cost-effective solution,” says Todd Mouw, president of Roush CleanTech. “This contract extension gives our customers and prospects the confidence that we are here for the long term and will help them achieve their economic and environmental sustainability goals into the future.”
