Colton, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) February 15, 2011
A-Z Bus Sales, Inc., the leading provider of green transportation solutions, today announced a new letter agreement with ROUSH® CleanTech, maker of liquid propane autogas fuel systems for light- and medium-duty Ford vans, cutaways and trucks. With this agreement, A-Z Bus Sales will become the first licensed, independent California bus dealer to purchase and install the ROUSH CleanTech liquid propane autogas fuel system on newer model year buses and trucks, including the Ford E-series vans and the Ford E-350 and Ford E-450 cutaway chassis. A-Z Bus Sales service technicians are currently obtaining additional certifications and converting stock bus units for sale in the second quarter of 2011. As fuel costs for diesel and gasoline powered vehicles continue to increase, the real need for a less expensive fuel like propane autogas has continued to expand the market for school districts and private fleets throughout California. A-Z Bus Sales sees this demand growing as it covers shuttle buses, school district white fleets and other truck and bus operators interested in reducing pollution, meeting state and federal emissions standards and using a domestic-produced fuel that lessens our dependence on imported oil.
“As the only California bus dealer representing a complete line of alternative-fuel buses, all types and classes, A-Z Bus Sales is knowledgeable about the market demand for propane autogas as a vehicle fuel and brings 15 years of experiences in converting and maintaining alternative fuel buses,” says Jim Reynolds, A-Z Bus Sales President. Mr. Reynolds continues, “ROUSH CleanTech’s propane autogas solution is well suited for commercial or transit bus applications and A-Z is pleased to add it to our product offering.”
“In addition to the benefits for our environment, the typical savings for running a fleet of propane autogas is extremely important to businesses concerned with operating costs,” says Todd Mouw, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for ROUSH CleanTech. “ROUSH CleanTech looks forward to working with A-Z Bus Sales to help California fleets save money and also remain within the California Air Resources Board’s guidelines, benefiting the air we breathe.”
