New Paratransit Bus Fueled by Propane Autogas Hits the Road
June 7, 2011 — ROUSH CleanTech and National Bus Sales have partnered to offer public and private bus fleets an alternative to diesel and gasoline-fueled vehicles. A new paratransit bus fueled by propane autogas was unveiled to public transportation professionals at the Community Transportation Association Expo in Indianapolis.
With the help of Elkhart Coach, a division of Forest River, Inc., the first of these propane autogas specialty buses will hit the road summer of 2011 in Texas as part of the Capital Area Rural Transit fleet to transport ambulatory and wheelchair passengers. An order for an additional eight shuttle buses is expected by fall of 2011.
National Bus Sales will then take on the marketing and placement of the propane autogas buses nationwide, expecting to sell hundreds during the next year.
