Information for Bus Owners
Mesa Public Schools turned to propane autogas as a cost-effective, cleaner solution for powering its school buses. The installation of refueling infrastructure was ahead of schedule and included training for the buses’ mechanics and drivers. With 89 propane-autogas-powered buses in its fleet, Mesa Public Schools estimates it has reduced a significant amount of greenhouse emissions. From a financial standpoint, propane autogas and its infrastructure also delivered a strong return on investment for the schools. In the first year of use, the district saved enough money to recoup the cost of the tank. The district expects that — as it continues to add more propane autogas buses — the payback will be even faster.
