New Brunswick Leads Atlantic Canada for Propane-Fueled School Buses
Sixteen propane-fuelled school buses ordered by the Province of New Brunswick will be ready to move students on the first day of school, saving the province money, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and creating a better ride for students and drivers. This is a first for Atlantic Canada.
“We are very pleased with the New Brunswick government’s decision to use propane to transport their students,” said CPA President & CEO Nathalie St-Pierre. “We are seeing an increasing number of schools using propane for transport because the results support the science: compared to diesel buses, propane school buses emit lower GHGs, 98 per cent fewer harmful emissions, are better for student health and help schools save significant costs.”
