Strategic alliance will allow optimise LPG technology for school bus market


Thomas Built Buses and Agility Fuel Solutions have formed a partnership to provide innovative, cutting-edge Autogas technologies to the school bus market, including greater reliability, quality, performance and efficiency than other LPG offerings in the North American market.

Thomas Built Buses will continue to offer the 8.0L V-8 LPG engine built specifically to run on Autogas in its Saf-T-Liner C2. The engine is paired with a true medium-duty transmission, the Allison 2300 PTS Series transmission. The integration of the engine and the Allison transmission leads to lower fuel costs and better performance for fleets.

“We have had great success working with Agility’s predecessor, CleanFuel USA, in the development of our popular Saf-T-Liner® C2 propane school bus. CleanFuel USA’s propane delivery system has been instrumental in the success of our Autogas product and we look forward to working with Agility to develop additional Autogas solutions in the near future,” said Caley Edgerly, president and CEO of Thomas Built Buses.

Kathleen Ligocki, CEO of Agility Fuel Solutions, also commented: “Through our recent acquisition of CleanFuel USA’s assets, we now are able to offer a complete Autogas solution for school buses across North America. Through this partnership with one of the leading school bus manufacturers, we look forward to accelerating the development and certification of some of our upcoming LPG systems. We will leverage Thomas Built’s experience, expertise and industry knowledge to bring best-in-class Autogas solutions to the pupil transportation industry.”
