Propane autogas paratransit bus unveiled today

Through June 10 at the Community Transportation Association Expo in Indianapolis, a new paratransit bus fueled by propane autogas will be unveiled to public transportation professionals. The new bus is a collaboration between ROUSH CleanTech and National Bus Sales to provide to the public and private bus fleets an alternative to diesel and gasoline-fueled vehicles. The first of the propane autogas specialty buses will be on the road this summer in Texas as part of the Capital Area Rural Transit fleet.

“This new venture has the potential to revolutionize the way governments, municipalities, and the public view the paratransit industry,” said Joe Thompson, president of ROUSH CleanTech. “No longer does the traditional image of dirty exhaust and compromised air quality from buses have to be the norm.”

Propane autogas is the world’s third-most widely used fuel and burns cleaner than gasoline or diesel. For more, visit
