November 4, 2016, Buffalo, NY – Continuing its long tradition of supporting the New York State School Boards Association, Leonard Bus Sales took the opportunity to introduce hundreds of school board members across the state to the new propane-powered CE Series school bus by IC Bus at the Association’s 97th annual convention in Buffalo. The new propane-powered school bus will complement the company’s popular clean-diesel-engine school buses that produce near-zero emissions.
“There was great interest in the newest member of our line-up of environmentally-friendly school buses, said Frank Continetti, Director of Sales and Marketing. “The propane-powered CE Series by IC Bus is a great addition to our best-selling, clean-diesel school bus. The propane option combined with our near-zero emission clean-diesel buses are great for the environment and our communities.”
The propane-powered school bus is now in full production with hundreds of the new school buses on the road throughout the country. The propane-powered school bus was a collaborative effort between IC Bus and engine-maker Power Solutions International, Inc. (PSI) whose engine was purpose-built for the school bus market.
“There are numerous advantages to school districts who work with Leonard Bus Sales, said company Vice President, Jon Leonard. “Not only do we provide market-leading and environmentally-friendly school buses, but we also act as a partner and trusted advisor to our school transportation partners providing them award-winning customer support and cost-saving fleet management services.”
No other company provides the one-stop-shop warranty, service and parts capabilities that Leonard Bus Sales provides for its alternative fuel vehicles. Unlike other propane-powered school buses, there are no third-parties involved in the warranty process. PSI is the manufacturer of record and assumes full responsibility if there are any manufacturer defects.
