Jamestown City School District Adds New, Clean Diesel Bus to Fleet with Help of Leonard Bus Sales

January 13, 2014, Jamestown, N.Y. – Leonard Bus Sales, Inc. recently helped Jamestown City School District in its effort to “green up” its school bus fleet by delivering a new, clean diesel IC Bus™ RE series vehicle. The new bus, using clean diesel technology, will run dramatically cleaner than a similar bus made just ten years ago.

“At Leonard Bus Sales, we know that the most efficient way to ‘green up’ a fleet is to replace aging buses with new buses that use clean diesel technology,” said the sales director for Leonard Bus Sales, Frank Continetti. “Today’s clean diesel buses run 20 times cleaner than buses made a decade ago. By replacing older buses with new, clean diesel ones, Jamestown City School District is making a marked improvement in its efficiency. And, we are delighted to work with them to make that happen.”

Jamestown CSD’s new RE series bus is just the latest of several new buses the school district has added to its fleet in the past year, all with the focus on improving their environmental footprint and running their fleet as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. Today’s clean diesel produce near zero emissions and can be added to a fleet without new expensive infrastructure needed for other fuels. In fact, according to the US Clean Air Taskforce, transportation dollars go further when fleets are updated with more affordable clean diesel buses as opposed to more expensive alternatives.

With the addition of new bus comes the award-winning support Leonard Bus Sales is known for throughout the industry, including service, parts, training and complimentary fleet management advice. In short, Leonard Bus Sales will help the fleet at Jamestown Schools run more efficiently long into the future.
