December 4, 2014, Poland, N.Y. – Leonard Bus Sales recently delivered two new clean engine buses to the Poland Central School District to help keep its fleet efficient, and the Herkimer Telegram was there to report on the news.
The newspaper reported that the Poland CSD celebrated National School Bus Safety Week with the arrival of the two new school buses – one IC Bus brand 66 passenger Type C bus and one Trans Tech 22-passenger Type A bus. The buses will both replace two older buses, each of a similar type.
In the report Poland Transportation Supervisor Jeff DeLucia said that the new buses have lower emissions and will get better mileage than the one being replaced.
Today’s clean diesel buses are 20 times cleaner than the buses of ten years ago, and now operate with near zero emissions. Each time a new, clean diesel replaces an older one, the whole fleet’s efficiency improves. Poland CSD is one of many school districts that use regularly fleet rotation to keep their fleets efficient.
“At Leonard Bus Sales, we know that the best way to improve a fleet’s efficiency is to replace older buses with new, clean-diesel buses,” said Leonard Bus Sales Vice President Jon Leonard. “We’re pleased to help Poland CSD keep its fleet running as efficient as possible.”
