Congratulations to the top Blue Bird alternative fuel dealers this year!

 

There are now more than 7,500 Blue Bird Vision Propane school buses running in over 600 school districts across North America. That’s a feat we should all be proud of, and it couldn’t have happened without the passion of the dealers to differentiate themselves from the competition with this great product.

 

ROUSH CleanTech appreciates all the work you did this year to promote propane to your customers. We’re excited for what 2017 has in store, and we expect we’ll see the same momentum carry through to drive even more propane interest across the U.S. and Canada!
