propane bus

First Student has begun adding 20 propane school buses into their fleet that serves Osseo Area Schools. These Thomas Saf-T-Liner C2 Propane buses feature characteristics that will likely provide a more pleasant transportation experience for students. Some of the new bus features include heating up faster, cleaner emissions, and quieter running engines.
