LISLE, Ill. — IC Bus has unveiled a new grant program that provides school districts with incentives to add propane-powered school buses to their fleets.
The IC Bus Grant Program will offer qualifying school districts in the U.S. and Canada $5,000 in grants per newly purchased propane-powered CE Series school bus.
IC Bus said that the grant can be used toward items such as buying additional buses, investing in new technology, hiring additional drivers, and making infrastructure updates to maintenance facilities.
"With today's advanced propane-powered buses offering an added dimension of environmental benefit, IC Bus is committed to doing what's right for our customers and for the environment, to create a better world by creating better buses," said Trish Reed, vice president and general manager of IC Bus. "The IC Bus Grant Program reaffirms our commitment to continue developing affordable, reliable, safe, and environmentally beneficial school bus options."
The IC Bus CE Series school bus is powered by the Power Solutions International 8.8-liter LP propane engine.
