School District Will Reportedly Save Some $400,000 over Ten Years

The board of Oregon’s Forest Grove School District west of Portland has approved the purchase of 36 propane-fueled school buses, which according to a local report will save a projected $400,000 over ten years of operation.

Blue Bird uses Roush CleanTech fuels systems for its propane buses, which have modified Ford engines.

Transportation services provider MIDCo, the Mid-Columbia Bus Company, will purchase ten buses in the first year, add five buses a year for the next four, finishing up with six buses in the fifth year, states the Oregon Live report.

The firm “will invest $3.7 million in the buses and also pay for the construction of an onsite fueling station,” writes Laura Frazier, citing a written proposal.

The vehicles will be Blue Bird Vision buses, Blue Bird sales chief John Roselli told F&F, supplied by Western Bus Sales, of Boring, Ore.
