Leaving a Legacy with Propane Buses, Part 1
It’s a big job to manage the day-to-day operations of school district transportation: Purchasing and maintaining the vehicles, developing routes and schedules, managing the budget and so much more. But, most importantly, getting students safely to and from school.
As a school transportation administrator or school board member, you have the opportunity to make a lasting impact on your district — now and for the future of your district. More dollars spent up-front on reliable, clean and proven transportation solutions can show cost benefits long after the initial purchase. Propane-powered buses can be an important part of that legacy of safety and economic savings. “I provide a valuable service, but if I can tighten the budget so that we can hire another teacher or provide updated technology to students, I’ve done a great job,” said Sam Ham, transportation director for Fulton County Schools in Georgia, on the lasting impact propane buses are having on his district.
