IC Bus equips autogas school bus with Allison transmission

January 15, 2020 By    

School bus manufacturers like IC Bus are continuing to offer updated gasoline and propane models equipped with Allison fully automatic transmissions. IC Bus selected the Allison 2500, part of the Pupil Transport Series, as the exclusive transmission for its gasoline-powered CE Series school bus line and as the standard option for its propane-fueled models. Allison’s torque converter enables more responsive acceleration, and the company says its transmissions also increase productivity in stop-and-go traffic. By moving power smoothly from the engine to the drivetrain, engine stress is reduced, while drivers and passengers enjoy a more comfortable ride. Additionally, Allison automatics have no mechanical clutches to wear out, which reduces downtime and maintenance costs, the company adds.
