Fleet of the Future
In Illinois, Township District High School 211 has a goal of going fully green by 2030 — and that means transitioning to propane autogas. To date, the district has flipped more than 40% of its fleet from diesel to propane autogas. As part of a financially responsible transition, Township keeps the upfront costs manageable by changing over about 10% of its fleet each year. The propane-fueled Blue Bird buses, which travel 9,000 miles each day, save almost $8,000 a year.
