October 3, 2013, Greece, N.Y. – This past weekend, Greece Central School District improved the overall fuel efficiency of its school bus fleet by replacing 18 decade-old buses with 18 new, clean diesel buses.
The switch officially happened on Saturday, September 28th, when 18 Greece CSD school bus drivers drove the retired buses away from the Greece CSD garage on Latta Road, and returned two hours later with 18 new clean, diesel IC Bus™ brand buses from the Leonard Bus Sales facility in Bergen, N.Y.
“The most affordable way to green-up your fleet is by replacing the decade old buses with new, clean diesel buses,” said Leonard Bus Sales’ Frank Continetti, sales director. “These new buses will dramatically improve the fuel efficiency of the Greece Central School District’s entire fleet. And we are pleased to help the school district do that.”
Today’s clean diesel buses are 20 times cleaner than the diesel buses of just ten years ago. Replacing just one decade-old bus with a new, cleaner diesel bus reduces the emissions on that route by 95%.
With 18 new, clean diesel buses, Greece CSD has made its fleet better for the environment. Combine that with Leonard Bus Sales’ industry-leading customer support, including parts, service, training and fleet management, and the Greece CSD will be able to keep its entire fleet more environmentally-friendly, affordable and safe for years to come.
