Safety is Key.

Propane Autogas is the not just the best economical choice you can make for your district, it's also the safest for your students. Here's why:

Lower emissions 

The clean burning nature of propane reduces harmful emissions and helps everyone (especially the kids standing at the bus stop) to breathe a little easier. When compared to diesel bus systems, use of propane Autogas led to a 95% reduction in harmful nitogen oxides. (source)

Quieter Operation 

Propane Autogas engines run quitter than diesels, leading to less noise pollution in  inside the bus and around your community. Drivers need to be able to hear students and propane helps that happen.

Safer Handling

Dirty diesel has a way of getting where it shouldn't be. With Propane Autogas, spills are a thing of the past, leading to a hazard-free shop and happy drivers and mechanics.

Despite the possibility of a few more nights of sub-freezing temperatures in the last week of April, our agronomy locations are not slowing down as they enter their busiest season. Our agronomy division and producer members are working hard to plant this year’s crop, with long days and short nights being the norm. It’s important to be extra cautious during the next couple of months. Farm machinery will be frequently entering and exiting fields and wide loads will be encountered on the road. Whether you’re driving to work or moving to the next field in your tractor, always be aware of your surroundings and never assume that others can see you. Take it slow and be safe.
