Propane-Powered Vision Goes Commercial
The commercial option of the Vision bus fueled by propane is now available. Blue Bird commercial buses provide a unique value proposition to our customers, with lower maintenance and repair costs, higher uptime and extended years of service. In addition to selling the propane-fueled Vision to school districts, we’re happy to promote this commercial model for use in many industries.
The versatile Propane Vision conventional bus features the same Ford 6.8L engine and six-speed automatic transmission found in the Type C school bus you’ve all come to know and love. The Propane Vision, which reduces emissions and lowers operating and maintenance costs, seats up to 48 passengers in the commercial application.
We’ve already sold Propane Vision conventional buses to Denali National Park and to Flint Mass Transit Authority. These buses are purpose built for tours, assisted living, public transit, shuttle markets and much more.
In addition to the Vision commercial model, there’s a Micro Bird D-Series MD available with the ROUSH CleanTech propane fuel system. Specifically designed for the airport, parking, rental car and hotel markets, this new bus has a 42-inch middle door entrance, wide body with wide aisle, and a total of 74 inches of luggage rack space. It comes in a variety of configurations and accessibility options. Like all Micro Bird D-Series buses, the new bus features a steel structure, aluminum side panels and large-view windows.
As the sales of the Vision propane-fueled school buses continues on the upswing, the commercial version is yet another option to increase your propane bus sales to customers. If you’d like to learn more or are interested in selling commercial buses, please reach out to your regional ROUSH CleanTech sales representative.
