Transportation company receives milestone bus; chooses Blue Bird Vision Gasoline for reliability and maintenance cost savings.
MACON, Ga. (March 13, 2019) — Blue Bird Corporation has proudly
delivered its 5,000th gasoline-powered school bus, following it’s “first-to-market”
introduction just over two years ago. The Type C gasoline bus has grown in
popularity due to low upfront costs, reliable cold-weather startup and heating
capabilities, ease of fueling accessibility, and maintenance cost savings.
WE Transport in Plainview, New York, received delivery of the
milestone bus in December, along with 59 other Blue Bird Vision Gasoline buses.
“This is the first time WE Transport has brought fuel other than diesel
into our bus fleet,” said Bart Marksohn, owner of the school
transportation contractor, WE Transport. “Our wish for an affordable,
reliable bus came true when Blue Bird and our dealer, Bird Bus, offered the
Vision gasoline model. We are extremely happy with our decision and foresee
gasoline being a big part of our future operations.”
Marksohn noted that the buses’ low upfront cost and proven
reliability were factors in their decision. WE Transport services more than 50
districts throughout New York, many of which are located on Long Island. The
Gas Buses will be used in Plainview, Island Trees, and Smithtown, with WE
Transport being New York’s first contractor to operate a large gasoline school
Sales of the Blue Bird Vision Gasoline bus have grown
significantly since its introduction in the fall of 2016. The bus is built on
the Ford 6.8-liter V10 engine and equipped with a ROUSH CleanTech fuel system.
Nearly 1,000 school districts now operate Blue Bird’s gasoline school bus.
Because they require no costly after-treatment systems or fluids like diesel buses, Blue Bird Vision Gasoline school buses are easy to maintain. They also run on the same proven Ford/ROUSH CleanTech powertrain system, which operates on thousands of buses in their propane platform.
