Make the best bottom-line decision for your district
Your district’s bus company can be a valuable partner – one that helps you make smart decisions about student transportation. Here are a few questions every district should ask its bus company:
“Can you offer an option that involves propane buses?” Many districts are converting to propane fueling. Find out why and how the transition works.
“Will you help us determine how much we’ll save with propane?” Basic calculations are available online, but your bus partner should be able to provide details.
“Will you explain the differences in maintenance procedures and costs?” Propane engines cost less to maintain – another huge advantage.
“Can you bring in partners to help us learn more about propane buses?” More input is better. Why not have a bus manufacturer and a propane expert present to your district.
“Propane buses are cleaner, quieter and less expensive to operate and maintain. Why shouldn’t we consider a transition?” It’s a big decision. Ask your bus company about pros and cons.
It’s a million-dollar decision, so it pays to learn more. Start a conversation with your bus company today.
