ROUSH CleanTech, Green Alternative Systems Introduce Autogas Shuttle Bus

ROUSH CleanTech unveiled its new propane autogas shuttle bus converted by its newest preferred industry partner, Green Alternative Systems, at the 2012 BusCon Expo, according to a company announcement on Sept. 12.

Green Alternative Systems (GAS) partnered to provide installations for ROUSH CleanTech propane autogas fueling systems in the transit, paratransit and commercial ground transportation markets.

The ROUSH CleanTech shuttle bus has completed Federal Transit Administration’s New Model Bus Testing Program (“Altoona Testing”) and is certified for sale in all 50 states by the California Air Resources Board and Environmental Protection Agency.

It is equipped with a Ford E-450 chassis with a 6.8-liter, V10 engine and a 41-gallon propane autogas fuel tank.

The ROUSH CleanTech propane autogas fuel system delivers equivalent horsepower, torque and towing capacity compared to gasoline versions of the same models, but emits 20% less nitrogen oxide, 60% less carbon monoxide and up to 25% less greenhouse gases, according to the company.

“ROUSH CleanTech has put substantial time and effort into developing a liquid propane autogas fuel system that not only reduces carbon emissions, but saves fleets significant amounts of money through lower operating costs,” said Todd Mouw, VP of sales and marketing for ROUSH CleanTech. “With GAS’s expertise and understanding of the transit, paratransit and commercial ground transportation markets, this partnership will open up a wealth of possibilities for fleets across America.”
