Blue Bird Delivers Record 15,000th Propane Bus
The 18 buses delivered to Newport News Public Schools may look ordinary, but a unique fuel powers them: propane. Their arrival marked a special milestone—the 15,000th propane bus delivered by Blue Bird. Newport News Public Schools operates a fleet of 335 buses, with 62 of them fueled by propane, an emission-reducing, cost-effective alternative fuel. The district has run propane buses for two years and will add 11 more by the end of 2019.
