The Future is Electric: Visit Our California School Bus Dealership for the Starcraft Quest XL

Posted by the Marketing Team on 10/30/17 4:36 PM

Electric power train technology has progressed to the level where we can finally have zero emission school buses in areas where we need it most.

In August, funded in part by a grant through the California Energy Commission (CEC) and the South Coast Air Quality Management District, two electric buses were delivered to the Colton Joint Unified School District (CJUSD) in San Bernardino County, California.

These electric buses deliver best-in-class performance in safety, driving experience, and range by using a versatile and modular all-electric powertrain. These zero-emission school buses have flexible seating, support wheelchair access, and can be configured to accommodate up to 8 wheelchairs for routes with special needs children. Built on Ford’s F59 chassis, the buses provide a maximum capacity of 48 passengers and a range of up to 85 miles on a single charge.

Electric school buses not only benefit the environment but they also protect our children from harmful fossil fuel emission. In addition, the increased adoption of electric school buses has created more employment opportunities in California.

Is It Time to Update Your Tour Bus Fleet?

Posted by Shayna Johnson on 8/18/17 12:00 PM

Knowing when to stop putting money into a bus and when to purchase a new bus can be a difficult balance. Buses can be either money makers or money pits for tour companies throughout the United States. Here's how to tell if you need to update your tour bus fleet this summer.

  •  Current Fleet Status

The biggest telltale sign that it's time to upgrade is the current condition of your fleet. Older buses or those with visible wear and tear should be replaced with newer models. Also, if you have buses that had more out of order days than days in service it's a good indicator that you should update your tour bus fleet.

  • High Maintenance Costs

The older your fleet, the higher the maintenance costs, particularly if your models have been discontinued because parts may become difficult to find. If you have noticed that your costs are beginning to rise, it might be worth investing in new tour buses.
